PREFACE 

The first edition of this work was published in 1869 by 
Professor xilexander Winchell of the University of Michigan. 
After its publication the author continued to collect genealogical 
information more or less actively throughout his life time. When 
he died in 1891, all his genealogical papers and documents were 
sent to his brother, N. H. Winchell, state geologist of Minnesota, 
who volunteered to continue the work. In 1896 the latter made 
plans to undertake the work more actively and in the following 
year, with the writer's assistance, he sent out thousands of 
copies of a printed circular letter, and many personal letters, 
obtaining a large amount of new information. In 1898 the 
work was interrupted by his absence in Europe, and pressure 
of other duties together with a serious illness prevented its re- 
sumption until about the year 1909. The next year a new cir- 
cular letter was prepared and sent to all the Winchells (and 
their descendants) whose addresses could be obtained. At this 
time he was assisted by his daughter, Mrs. I. W. Stacy of Minne- 
apolis. Once again considerable new information was obtained. 

Throughout the long period of collecting information he 
was assisted at every opportunity by his younger brother, S. R. 
Winchell, of Chicago, and by his sons, Horace V. Winchell, of 
Minneapolis, and Alexander N. Winchell, of the University of 
Wisconsin. He also had the cordial cooperation of hundreds of 
cousins in all parts of the country without whose assistance 
the work would be impossible. 

In 1912 he began preparing the material at hand for publica- 
tion, devoting to the task all his spare time with untiring energy 
and deyotion. He was at the time living in Minneapolis, and 
regularly spending a full day in archeological work in St. Paul. 
In spite of advancing years, and scientific work faithfully and 
brilliantly performed, he pushed the work forward, using 
evenings and other times given by many a younger man to 
rest or recreation. In April, 1914, less than a month before his 
death, he completed the first draft of the manuscript of the 
Windsor Branch. 

After his sudden death, which occurred May 2, 1914, the 

xi 



Xll PREFACE 

task of completing the manuscript fell to the lot of the writer, 
who had spent some spare time during the preceding year in 
collecting information concerning the Winchells and the Wincolls 
in the library of the Wisconsin Historical Society. From this 
and other sources the writer has been able to add about ten 
percent to the manuscript pages devoted to the Windsor Branch, 
and to prepare genealogies of the Wincolls in England and 
America. In this work all the family genealogies and many 
of the local histories of the United States (together numbering 
thousands of volumes) in the libraries at Madison have been 
consulted, as well as hundreds of volumes of old English 
records. 

The writer has also prepared the manuscript of the Columbia, 
Goshen, and German Branches and the (unfortunately long) 
lists of isolated families and individuals, together with sum- 
maries, tabulations, index, etc. 

In the course of this work the writer has gradually obtained 
rather definite opinions regarding the origin of the family name, 
and the supposed connection between the Winchell and the 
Wincoll family, which differ somewhat from those of Alexander 
Winchell, expressed in the first edition, and also from those of 
N. H. Winchell given in the Introduction to this volume. Since 
they are supported by some evidence not elsewhere presented, 
and are believed to be of some interest and importance, they are 
given in the text.

GENERAL INTRODUCTION 

ORIGIN OF THE NAME. 

By N. H. Winchell. 

On the southeastern coast of England, between Hastings and 
Dover, but nearer to Hastings, is what remains of one of the 
ancient " Cinque Ports" of England. It is near the mouth of 
a small stream whose debouchure into the channel formerly 
afforded sufficient entrance into a small harbor where ships 
could ride and discharge and receive cargo. In Roman times 
there is no reasonable doubt 1 that the galleys of the Caesars 
here discharged some of the soldiers who conquered Britain. 
This stream is now called the Bother, and forms the boundary 
between Sussex and Kent. The dilapidated village near its 
mouth, now called Winchelsea, is the successor of the original 
city of the same name which was destroyed by the encroachment 
of the ocean in 1280. Nothing is known, so far as I have been 
able to ascertain, of the name of this stream or of this town in 
the time of the Roman power in Britain. When in the middle 
and latter part of the fifth century the Saxons under Hengist 
and Horsa took possession of southern England the first capital 
was established at Canterbury and the "Saxon Heptarchy" 
finally became firmly rooted in all of Britain as far north as the 
Avon and Thames. It was during the Saxon rule that this town 
seems to have acquired the name Winkel, and it is not improbable 
that the name was imported from Saxony. The word winkel (or 
wincel) signifies an angle, and was probably derived from some 
natural feature of the land, or perhaps from a turn in the river 
where the Saxons landed. At least the use of the name for the 
town suggests the existence of some "angle" in the river or 
in the coast line so prominent that it was chosen to designate 
the town which was adjacent to it. With lapse of time the 
spelling, always variable and uncertain during medieval time, 

1 Lewis: Topographical Dictionary of England, 1831, vol. 4, p. 492, 
states that Winchelsea was a place of considerable importance in the time 
of the Romans.

2 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

whenever it denoted a family patronymic, took the form some- 
times of Winkle, or Wincoll, or Wincall, and under the French 
influence of the Norman occupancy was softened to Winchel. 
These spellings became more or less fixed, and were also aug- 
mented by the addition of a final syllable, becoming Winchelsea, 
Winchelsey, Winchelcomb, Wincholback, and perhaps abbrevi- 
ated into such forms as Winch, Winche, Wynch, Win, and 
Wynne. It is likely that the necessity of distinguishing be- 
tween different families to some extent also contributed to these 
variations, some of which have become widespread. Such forms 
as Wincold, Winkall, Winchil and Winshall and probably others, 
may be considered simply as the result of misspelling some of 
the foregoing. At the same time there was also a tendency, 
especially in Germany, to which country some of the name seem 
to have migrated on account of the religious persecutions of 
the time of Queen Elizabeth, to revert to more distinctly Ger- 
man orthography. This gave rise to the forms Wunschel, 
Wiinstel and Wiinsch as well as Witchel and Wenzel. Such 
forms as Winchester, the camp of the Winchells, Winchonden, 
the valley, or glen, of Winchell and even the Dutch Van Winkle 
and the German Winklemann, manifest clearly some etymological 
relation. There is also a town named Winkel in North Holland, 
on the Zuyder Zee. This name also appears several times in 
the city directory of Kotterdam. 

The termination ea or sea is not easy to explain. The orig- 
inal Saxon for angle is wincel, and ea in Saxon signifies running 
water. It has been presumed that by writing winceles, a case 
form of wincel, with ea, and softening the Saxon hard sound 
of c, the word winchelsea may have been formed. On the other 
hand the word sea may have been added, in the Anglo-Saxon 
form see, which means sea, because of some proprietorship or 
other relation of the town to a part of the sea coast. That this 
suffix was accepted by the town early in its history is well 
established. The traditional tales of King Arthur's round table 
mention one of the knights as Sir Petipase, from Winchelsea 
(Le Morte d r Arthur, by Sir Thomas Malory, vol. 1, Book III, 
p. 91, published about 1479) ; in 1293 "Kobert Winchelsey" was 
elected archbishop of Canterbury. 

As 1 family names did not exist in England generally (as 

1 This paragraph and the following one were written by N. H. Winchell 
in February, 1914, some time after the rest of this Introduction; together 
with a note on the first page of the manuscript: "This Introduction is to

now in Scandinavia) back further than about the thirteenth 
century, it will be impossible obviously to trace either Winchell 
or Wincoll back of that. In that interval of time between the 
coming of the Normans and the adoption and preservation of 
surnames, presuming that Winkel was the pre-Norman word, it 
seems to me very probable that those who were affected by the 
French invasion and conquest, the town having been given to 
a bishop and his followers who came from France, would change 
Winkel or Winchelsea to Winchel or Winchelsea, while at the 
same time those Saxons who introduced or created it would 
perpetuate the hard sound of k in Winkel, and that after a few 
hundred years it would appear in the records in the forms 
Winkoll, Wincoll and even Wincold, and that hence there can- 
not be reasonably such an inference that one is derived from 
the other, but that the most reasonable presumption would be 
that they grew up contemporaneously. 

This does not make any allowance for the fantastic idea that 
Frigemareventus, the old Roman name of Winchelsea, was trans- 
lated by the Saxon into Wind-chil-sea. 



ORIGIN OF THE NAME WINCHELL. 

By A. N. Winchell. 

There is little doubt that the family name of the Winchells 
is derived from the name of a place, and it seems most probable 
that it comes from the name of a town called Winchelsea, which 
was once an important port of England. The evidence of this 
origin may be summarized as follows: 

Family or surnames did not exist commonly in England 
earlier than about the fourteenth century; just before and dur- 
ing the time when such names were gradually adopted, old 
records show that persons were commonly known by such names 
as: "William de Winchelcumbe, ' ' "Stephen de Wynshull, ' ' 
'Walter de Wynealton," etc. The preposition "de" means of, 
and these names mean respectively: William of (the town or 
monastery of) Winchelcumbe (later known as Winchcomb), 
Stephen of (the town of) Wynshull (later known as Winshill 

be revised and rewritten, ' ' it suggests that the author had modified to 
some extent his views in regard to the origin of the name and the connec- 
tion between Wincoll and Winchell. — A. N. W. 



4 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

— a town in Derbyshire owned by monks at the date of the 
Domesday book), Walter of (the town of) Wyncalton (known 
also as Winchaulton about 1240, and now called Wincanton). 
In many instances it has been demonstrated that such names 
were shortened by losing the preposition, and a name like John 
of London became merely John London. The Winchell sur- 
name may be derived in the same way from any one of the 
following place names: 

1. Winchelcumb, a monastery and town in Gloucestershire. 

2. Winchaulton, a town in Somersetshire, England. 

3. Winchala, a monastery in or near Ripon, England. 

4. Wynshull, a township in Derbyshire, England. 

5. Winchelsea, a port between Hastings and Dover, England. 

There is no known evidence to indicate that the name Win- 
chelcumb was ever used as a surname, perhaps because the 
place name was soon shortened to Winchcomb. It is possible 
that this word was afterward still further shortened to the 
surname Winch. 

Similarly, there is no indication that Winchaulton became a 
family name similar in form to Winchell, possibly because it 
was soon changed to Wincanton. Whether the latter afterward 
became a surname is not known to me. 

The only known record of Winchala is in Volume 74 of the 
publications of the Surtees Society which states that a synod 
was held in Winchala on September 4, 787. Winchala was 
probably a monastery or similar institution in or near Ripon. 

There is good reason to believe that the surname Winshull 
is derived from the place of the same name (Wynshull), but 
there is no indication in the old records of any connection be- 
tween the Winshull x and Winchell families. Apparently the 
Winshull family was not large, and it may have disappeared 
entirely. 

That the surname Winchell (or Winchel) came from Win- 
chelsea, at least in some cases, is almost beyond question. 
For example, Robert, Archbishop of Canterbury in 1300, is 
often called Robert de Winchelsea in the old records, but his 
name is also given frequently as Robert Winchelsea (or Win- 

*See Index to Herald's Visitations in the British Museum, p. 209, for a 
reference to the family of "Winshull of Wood Norton, Norfolk, from 

Cheshire. ' '

chelse). Again, King Edward III sent a writ 1 on September 
20, 1345, to " William de Wynchelse" directing him to collect 
40 carpenters at Winchelsea to be ready to accompany the 
king on his next invasion of France. On February 22, 1346, 
King Edward 2 sent another writ of the same purport to the 
same person who was called this time "William Large de 
Winchese. " Finally, the king 3 sent a third writ on April 11, 
1346, to "William de Winchelse" directing him to take 39 
carpenters (with their tools) to accompany the invading army. 
After the return of King Edward, "William de Wynchelse ,, 
(presumably the same person) was first, in 1348, sergeant-at- 
arms to the king, and later became a freeman 4 of York and 
a dealer in spices in the year 1350. The editor of the volume 
in which this last record is published calls attention (in the 
introduction) to the fact that during the fourteenth century 
family names were gradually adopted, and cites various in- 
stances, including some derived from names of places. From 
the same volume it appears that "William Wynchell" was a 
merchant and a freeman of York in the year 1412. According 
to the editor the right of freemanship could be purchased, or 
inherited, or obtained as an honor by gift. The right was 
probably purchased by "William de Wynchelse" and inherited 
from him by "William Wynchell." 

In addition to these facts derived from old records, a tradi- 
tion 5 existed in some branches of the family that our surname 
was formerly Winchelsea or Winchelsey. 

The origin of the name Winchelsea cannot be stated with any 
certainty. The following derivations have been given by various 
authors, who agree in only one particular, namely, that the 
word is of Saxon origin. 

1. From Wincheling, the son of Cissa, who founded the 
south Saxon kingdom, according to Clarke's British Gazetteer 
published in London in 1852. 

2. From Wincel-ea, the first word being often written 
winceles and meaning an angle, just as the German word winkel 
does at present, and the second word meaning water, a watery 
place, or running water. The name would then mean a watery

place at an angle, referring to the fact that the town was built 
on low marshy land at an angle in the sea coast or in the course 
of the small river Rother at the mouth of which Winchelsea 
was located; or the meaning could be given as an angle on 
running water. This is the derivation adopted by A. Winchell 
in the first edition of this book, and is given by several other 
writers. 

3. From wincel-sae, the first word meaning an angle, and the 
second word meaning sea. The name would then mean an angle 
in the sea coast. 

4. From wind-chil-sas, the first word meaning wind, or 
breeze, the second word meaning chill or cold, and the third 
word meaning sea. The name would then mean a cold windy 
place on the sea. This is the derivation given by Jeake in his 
translation of the Charters of the Cinque Ports. 

5. From wind-chils-ea, the first word meaning wind or 
breeze, the second word meaning cold, and the third word 
meaning a place surrounded by water or an island. The name 
would then mean a windy cold island. It is said that the 
site was at one time an island. This is the derivation given 
by Holloway as quoted by W. D. Cooper in the History of 
Winchelsea, published in London in 1850. 

The following extract from Cooper's work (pages 1-3) is 
of interest in this connection. 

Ancient Winchelsea. 

"Site. — The site of the first town of Winchelsea was a low 
flat island, situate at the southeastern extremity of the county 
of Sussex, about six miles northeast of Fairlight cliff, three 
miles S. E. by E. of the hill on which modern Winchelsea stands, 
two miles S. S. E. of the eminence which forms the town of 
Rye, and seven miles S. W. from Old Romney, in Kent. In 
the earliest times, the face of the district was very different 
to its present state ; the town of Rye was a bare insulated rock ; 
the hill of Hingham was surrounded by water on all sides, 
except the south, — the waters flowed below Udimore up to Brede 
in one level, and to Appledore, and indeed, close to Tenterden, 
in the other level, — whilst in the time of the Romans, the ground, 
on which Old Romney is now built, had just made its head 
above the waters. Jeake describes Old Winchelsea as washed 
by the British ocean on the south and east, and by the mouth 



ORIGIN OF THE NAME i 

of the river Rother (then running out there), on the north. 
The old town was separated, therefore, from most of the above- 
mentioned localities by a wide waste of waters, and the path 
to it on every side, save the west, was over a large estuary. 

"Whether the town existed at the time of the Roman Con- 
quest, is matter of doubt. Camden does not lay it down in his 
maps of Roman or even of Saxon Britain ; in his map of Sussex 
he gives it under the Roman name of Vindelis, 1 with the addi- 
tion of 'Old Winchelsey drowned'; but that name would be 
more correctly given to the isle of Portland. Jeake tells us, 2 
that it was reported 'by Johnson in his atlas, to have been a 
city in the time of the Romans.' In Gough's edition of Camden, 
and in the map of Ancient Britain, published by the Society for 
Diffusing Useful Knowledge, the harbour is given as Portus 
novus. The spot on which the old town stood is accurately 
marked in the map given by Dugdale in his History of Em- 
banking. The bearings indicate a place immediately on the 
east side of the east pier head of Rye harbour, constituting the 
Camber farm estate, which is in the parish of St. Thomas, 
Winch elsea, and must, therefore, have been the site, or adjoining 
the site of the original town. Norden, in his preface to the 
History of Cornwall, published in 1724, says, 'the ruins thereof 
now lie under the waves three miles within the high sea.' 
Tradition gives the same site; and report has spoken of ruins 
there found. A survey of the bay of Rye, however, has not 
brought any such to light; and the better opinion seems to 
be, that the ground, which was submerged at the latter part 
of the 13th century, began partially to reappear towards the 
end of the 15th or the beginning of the 16th, was gradually 
recovered and fenced in up to the close of the 17th century, and 
is now a fine rich alluvial soil. 3 

"Whether the town did or did not exist in the time of the 
Romans, it was, assuredly, built and had become an important 
place in Saxon days. 

"Name. — From the Saxon it derives its name. 4 According 

1 Butler, in his Atlas of Ancient Britain, also gives this as the site of 
Vindelis. 

2 Chartres, 103. 

8 Mr. Holloway has supplied us with a piece of black hard wood, or as 
it is here called ''moor bog," taken in July, 1849, from a spot dry at low 
water mark, and which was, doubtless, part of Old Winchelsea. 

4 The name has been variously written, Winchelsee ; Winchelsey ; Wyn- 



8 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

to Somner, it comes from the Saxon words 'Wincel' [mean- 
ing in Latin] angulus, and 'Ea' [meaning in Latin] mare, 
and signifies a 'waterish place, seated in a corner.' Jeake, 
in a note, gives an old Latin line [designating the 'Cinque 
Ports' or five ports of England as] 'Dover, Sandivicus, Ry, 
Rum, Prig: — mare ventus.' It [the last name] is literally 
'Friget mare ventus/ Wind-chils-sea. 'Chil, an old name/ 
he adds, 'yet in use for cold, and well might the old town 
deserve that name, standing in a low place open both to the 
winds and sea.' Twine imagines it to have been written, 
originally, ' Windchelseum, ' from its being exposed to the winds; 
for so he adds, 'Olim vento frigori et ponto obnoxium, undeci 
nomen obvenit, ' x Mr. Holloway ' agrees with all these in the 
general root of the name, but not in all the particulars ; he would 
give the name and interpretation, Winchelsea, Wind-cold-island, 
or more properly Cold-wind-island.' 

' ' Saxon Times. — It is not mentioned in the Saxon Chronicle, 
nor by name in Domesday : 2 yet, according to Ruding, King 
Edgar had a mint here (Wencles) in 959; and it was a town 
of sufficient importance in the time of Edward the Confessor, 
or St. Edward as he is called in the charter of Henry III, to 
be granted by him, together with the adjacent town of Rye, to 
the abbot and monks of Fischampe (vulgarly Fechamp) in 
France; to whom they were further granted and confirmed by 
King William and King Henry, with their liberties, free customs, 
pleas, plaints, and causes." 

It is mentioned under the name Wincaleseia in the Botulus 
Magnus Pipo3 of Henry I in the year 1130. It was the landing 
place of William the Conqueror in 1067 (Clarke's British 
Gazeteer) and of Henry II in January, 1188, on returning 

chelse, in French; 15 Eich. II, Wynchesie; in 17th Eich. II, Wynchelse; 
and the same in Latin in 22 Hen. Ill, etc. 

1 Gibson's Additions to Camden, 1695. 

2 It is not strange that no mention is made in Domesday of the towns 
of Winchelsea and Eye; that document was not, as is often erroneously 
supposed, a record of all places and towns, it was an enumeration only of 
manors; and in it are mentioned the manors of Stainings and Eameslie, in 
Sussex, which were held by the Abbey of Fechamp. At the dissolution of 
the alien Priories, they held the manors of Stening, Brede, Charlton, and 
Wormenhurst, in Sussex, together with the patronage of their churches, and 
the patronage of the church of St. Leonard, near Winchelsea, and these 
possessions were granted to the newly founded Monastery of Syon.

from France, the name being given as ' * Wenchelase " (Master 
of Rolls, London, vol. 49). 



THE WINCHELL NAME IN ENGLAND. 
By N. H. Winchell. 

No research has been conducted in England, as to the dis- 
semination of the family, but by reference to published gene- 
alogical documents found in American libraries some interesting 
facts have been gleaned concerning the name and some of the 
families. 

In the twenty- third year of Edward I (1295) , in Calendarium 
Genealogicum, vol. II, p. 500, is the following record: "36, 
Galfridus de Knelle. Inquisition post mortem. De quibus terris 
et redditibus praedictis (in Knelle) Robertus Paulyn de Wynchel- 
ese habet medietatem per novum statutem pro debitis Mathaei 
de Knelle patris dicti Galfridi" . . . Sussex'. (V. Rot. Fin., 
23 Edw. I, m, 13.) 

In the twenty-eighth year of Edward I (1300), in vol. II 
of the same work, p. 54, is the following record: "150, De 
walliis et fossatis marisci de Wynchelese reparandis et susten- 
tandis," etc. 

Also in the thirty-first year of Edward I, (1303), as follows, 
p. 649 : ' ' 120. De inquirendo de wallia maris etc. in marisco de 
Wynchelse." 

In a work in two folio volumes, entitled Survey of the cities 
of London and Westminster, written in 1598, oy John Stow, 
corrected and continued from 1633 to 1720, is an account of 
Dr. Thomas Winchelsey and his liberal benefactions, and of 
Robert Winchelsey, Archbishop of Canterbury, and his exten- 
sive charities. 

In "Magna Britannia Antiqua et Nova, or a New Exact and 
Comprehensive Survey of the ancient and present state of Great 
Britain, more comprehensive and instructive than Camden 
or any other author on this subject," London, 1730, 6 vols., 
8vo, are notices of Winchelseys (vol. 5, p. 503) under the head 
Winchelsea, the seaport, as follows, viz. : 

"Robert Winchelsey, being a native of this town, is a great 
credit to it, arising to the high station of an archbishop, Anno 
1294. He was educated in Merton college, Oxford, and, being 



10 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

a graduate, went to Paris where he took the degree of Master 
of Arts, and was made Rector of that University. Returning 
home he took his degrees in Divinity, and having passed through 
many preferments, was at length made Archbishop of Canter- 
bury. He went to Rome for his pall, according to the custom 
then in use, and easily obtained it of Pope Celestine, and when 
he came home again was enthroned solemnly, and upon the 
same day consecrated one bishop, and bestowed twelve rich liv- 
ings on twelve doctors, and as many smaller ones on other divines. 
He suffered many troubles from King Edward I, because in 
obedience to a canon of the Council of Lyons, he would not con- 
sent that a tax should be laid on the clergy without the Pope's 
allowance; but by King Edward II he was restored to his See, 
and though a strenuous opposer of Graveston and the Spencers, 
that king's favorites, lived and died in peace, abounding in 
charity and hospitality. He was a worthy prelate, an excellent 
preacher, and being learned himself loved and preferred learned 
men. His beneficence was prodigious, for he is said to have re- 
lieved, weekly on Sundays and Fridays, 4000 men when corn 
was cheap, and 5000 when it was dear; and to such as could 
not come to receive his alms, he sent it to their houses. After 
his death, which happened 1313, he was honored by the poor, as 
a Saint, though not canonized by the Pope." 

"John Winchelsey was probably a kinsman of the Arch- 
bishop's, since he was a native of the same place and bore the 
same name. He was bred in Oxford, and was eminent there 
for his great learning. He is said to have made both poets and 
philosophers harmonize with the Gospel Divinity, as far as 
Nature could symbolize with grace. In his old age he turned a 
Franciscan, and entered himself into their convent at Gales- 
bury, as thinking monkery a more direct way to heaven than 
a secular way of living, so much doth prejudice and supersti- 
tion sometimes triumph over learning; but he died before the 
year of his probation was ended, and was buried in the convent, 
An. Dom. 1326." 

It was to Robert Winchelsey, as Archbishop of Canterbury, 
that was addressed the celebrated Bull of Pope Boniface VIII, 
date June 27th, 1299, in which the Pontiff asserted his own 
claim to the throne of Scotland with which Edward I was then 
at war, and over which he asserted royal authority. Winchelsey, 
according to Lingard, did not receive the Bull until twelve 
months had elapsed, when he forthwith proceeded with it, 



THE WINCHELL NAME IN ENGLAND 11 

through great difficulties, to Edward. This monarch decided 
to convene a parliament for the purpose of consultation in 
reference to the Pope's claims. Writs were accordingly issued 
Sept. 26th, 1300, and the Barons assembled at Lincoln, and 
agreed upon their celebrated "Letter" as the response of the 
commonwealth of England to the pretensions of the Pope. 

In an edition of Valerius Maximus, with notes by Antonius 
Thysius, Lugd. Batavorum, apud Franciscum Hackium, Anno 
1660 I find on p. 286 a note which begins: — Quod saepe evenit 
et humili, etc. In Winchel. Quo saepe evenit. This seems to 
imply that an edition of Valerius had been published by a 
classical scholar named Winchel. 

In the Calendar of State Papers (colonial), East Indies, 1513- 
1616, p. 413, No. 993, June 20, 1615, Court Minutes of the East 
India Company, among other items is found: "Petition of 
Kobert Wincall for Adderly's place refused." 

These quotations go to show not only the early English 
antiquity of the name but also the varied spelling- which it 
received. 

In England the spelling Wincoll came to be prominent and 
permanent. As early as 1619, in the Visitation of the County 
of Leicester, taken by William Camden, the arms and crest of 
John Wincoll of Waldingfield, Suffolk, are described, and in 
1577 the same arms and crest are described and assigned to 
John Wincold of Waldingfield, probably father of the former; 
but the record also has the spelling John Wyncold; and on page 
160 of the same work it is stated that Mary, daughter of John 
Raven, married William Winckall, of London. A marriage 
license was granted in 1605 to Leonard Hallidaye and Anne 
Wincoll, and to Susan Wincoll and Robert Rawlins, June 1, 
1644. These were issued by the bishop of London, and they 
show the prevalence of the family name, not only in London, 
but in the country adjacent, including Suffolk, Leicester, and 
Essex. Yet, the Visitation of London, 1633, 34 and 35 (2 vols., 
4to) contains no Wincoll, a fact which indicates that the titled 
members of the family were landed proprietors in the country 
at large, though probably not descendants of those who had 
soldiers' grants from William the Conqueror. It is evident, 
also, from the records that the form Wincold was earlier than 
Wincoll. 

So far as can be stated at present, from the information 
available, the spelling Winchell although prevalent in America 



12 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

since the time of English settlement in the first half of the 
seventeenth century, was less common in England.

Winchelsey as a personal name seems to be less frequent in 
the fifteenth and later centuries, perhaps because replaced to 
some extent by the shorter form "Winchel, Wynchell, or 
Winchell." However, published records of the Winchell name 
in England are very few in number. The earliest known is 
that of William Wynchell, freeman of York in 1412. No fur- 
ther records have been discovered until a much later date, only 
a short time before the settlement of New England. It appears 
that Annis Winchell, spinster, lived in Sherborne, Dorsetshire, 
England, in the latter part of the sixteenth century. Her will, 
dated 26 December, 1598, was proved in the Prerogative Court 
of Canterbury on April 28, 1599. An abstract x of her will 
follows : 

Will of Annis Winchell, 

of Sherborne, co. Dorset, spinster ; 

dated 26 December, 41 Elizabeth (=1599). 

I desire to be buried in Sherborne parish church, and give to 

the same 20 shillings and to the poor there 40 shillings.

About the same time Robert Wynchell was a ''citizen and 
painter-stainer" of London. His business was such as would 
now be called decorating; that is, before paper was used as an 
interior wall finish the walls were decorated by "painter- 
stainers." He was also a painter of coats of arms and crests, 
as shown by the ' ' Petition of the Company of Painters Stainers 
of London" elsewhere quoted (pp. 19, 20). Finally, he was al- 
most certainly the original possessor of the Winchell coat of arms 
described on page 19 and illustrated in the frontispiece. An 
abstract 1 of his will follows : 

Will of Robert Wynchell,

My desire is that my wife and son William shall have their 
habitation together in my dwelling house in St. Anne's lane, 
and, as I doubt not she will be a kind mother to him, so I 
charge him to be loving and dutiful to her, especially con- 
sidering her old age and infirmity. 
All my household stuff I give to my wife for her life, with 
remainder to my son William at her decease, or to his chil- 
dren, if he be not then living.

before the same was sealed and delivered by him.

The next record of a Winchell in England is in a "Bill" 
filed 18 May, 1622, in a proceeding in chancery regarding cer- 
tain land at Hayford Warren, Oxfordshire. It appears from 
the abstract that Judith Williams married William Winchell, 

1 Made by Miss Ethel Stokes of London. 



16 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

and that she was entitled to hold the land as tenant during her 
life. She obtained this right in 1597 and was probably born 
at least 20 years earlier. The land was (and is still) owned by 
Winchester (now New) College, Oxford. The abstract 1 follows: 

Chancery Bills and Answers, James I. 

Bill (filed 16 May, 1622) by Richard Barrett of Hayford War- 
ren, co. Oxon, husbandman, vs. one William Winchell and 
Judith, his wife, and one John Hinde, and the Warden, etc. 
of Winchester College. 

The complainant holds a messuage and 3% yard lands in Hay- 
ford Warren from Winchester College, Oxford, lords of that 
manor, by demise made at the manor court 4 December, 2 
Elizabeth (1559) to the complainant's father Thomas Bar- 
rett, for the lives of himself, his wife and his son, and the 
longer liver of them. On the father's death, his widow 
Margaret was admitted, and on her death (about 4 years 
since) the complainant succeeded. But the defendants have 
got into their hands the original copy made of the premises, 
and pretend that they or one of them have been lawfully 
admitted tenants at a recent court. 

John Hinde answers for his part, that on 20 August last the 
other defendants demised the premises to him for 2 years. 

William Winchell and his wife, in a separate answer dated 18 
May 1622 say that at the court of 2 September 39 Elizabeth 
(1597) the reversion of the premises directly they should 
come into the hands of the lords was granted to the defendant 
Judith for term of her life. Thomas Barrett the father died 
long since, when the said Judith was an infant. They be- 
lieve the complainant entered into the premises on his 
mother's death without any colour of title. 

At a court holden 11 April 16 James I (1618) the defendant 
Judith was duly admitted tenant by the steward. They 
have made a lease to the other defendant for the purpose 
of a trial of their title in the King's Bench by proceedings 
in ejectment. 

The answer of the Warden etc. says that at the court of 22 
October 36 Elizabeth (1594) one James Dodwell surrendered 
the premises (in reversion on the death of Thomas Barrett) 
to James Williams and Philipa Dodwell, daughter of the

said James Dodwell. In 39 Elizabeth, after the death of 
the said James Williams and Philipa Dodwell, the said re- 
version was granted to Judith Williams, now wife of the 
said William Winchell. On 11 April 16 James I, on the 
death of Margaret Barrett, the said Judith Williams, now 
Judith Winchell, was admitted tenant. 

No other records of the name in England at any date are 
known to the writer, and it has been impossible to verify the 
report 1 that Winchells were living in London and Wales in 
the nineteenth century. But no investigations have been made 
in England or Wales. 



VARIATIONS IN THE NAME. 
By A. N. Winchell. 

The family surname is known to be used in the following 
forms: (1) Winchell, prevalent in America ; (2) Winchel, often 
found in early New England records and still used by descend- 
ants of 48 Stephen and 248 Robert; (3) Winchill, rarely found 
in Dorchester Records (Mass.) and used by some descendants 
living chiefly in Wisconsin and Minnesota; (4) Winchil, very 
rarely used in old records; (5) Wynchell, used in 1412 in York, 
England, and also in records of the Gen. Court Conn. It is very 
probable that the name was formerly: (6) Winchelsea, (7) 
Winchilsea, (8) Winchelsey, (9) Winchelse, (10) Winchelese, 
(11) Winchelesse, (12) Wynchelse, (13) Wynchelsay, (14) 
Wynchalse, (15) Wincheleseh, (16) Winchilse, (17) Winchillese, 
(18) Wynchelese, (19) Wincheleis, (20) Wincheleia, (21) 
Wincheleze. These names were sometimes written in the ab- 
breviated forms: (22) Wincheles', (23) Winchels', (24) 
Winchel'. The following names are probable variations: (25) 
Winchol, (26) Winschell, (27) Wiinschel, (28) Winschel. 

It is very likely that still other forms exist, but after con- 
siderable study the writer finds no satisfactory evidence that 
the name has ever varied to Wincoll, Winkle, Witchell, 2 Winch, 
or any similar forms. 

1 Winchell Genealogy, first edition, p. 14. 

2 According to recent information from Mr. O. Witchell of Detroit, 
Mich., his surname was "de Wich Well' , in 1320, becoming Witchwell a 
little later, and Witchell or Witchel since about 1680. 



18 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

On account of the belief expressed* by Alexander Winchell 
and by N. H. Winchell that Robert Winchell of Windsor, the 
founder of the Windsor Branch, was related to the Wincolls 
of early New England times, it is important to discuss this 
question somewhat fully. 

Robert "Wincall" was admitted a freeman of Massachusetts 
on May 6, 1635. It is probable that this was the man who is 
known as Winchill, Wynchell, or Winchel in all other records, 
and whose descendants form the Windsor branch. This single 
record is the only evidence that is not easily explained of a 
relationship between the Winchells and the Wincolls. In view 
of evidence presented later of no sucli relationship the writer 
believes that this entry was incorrectly written, or, possibly, 
does not refer to Robert Winchell. 

The second instance in which the names Winchell and Win- 
coll .are said to have been used for the same person is in 
A Booke of Entrie for Passengers, etc. In this case the orig- 
inal manuscript must be indistinct since the same record has 
been printed by one editor 1 as : Elizabeth Winchell and John 
Winckoll ; by another as : Elizabeth Winchell and John Winchell, 
and by a third 2 as : Elizabeth Winckoll and John Winckoll. 
The writer believes that the original manuscript has been cor- 
rectly read by the third editor, and not by the others. The 
name Wincoll was often written Winckoll, as in this instance. 

The evidence that the Winchell and Wincoll families are 
entirely distinct may be given briefly as follows: 

1. A careful study of the history of the Wincoll (or 
Wyncoll) family in England does not supply the name of any 
Robert who was probably the same as Robert "' Wincair' of 
Massachusetts. 

2. An examination of old records of the family of Wyncoll 
in England does not disclose a single instance in which the 
name is spelled with an h, and no case in which it is spelled 
with an e, unless the name varies to Winkell, which is not prob- 
able, as that name is never used for persons known to belong 
to the family. 

3. A comparison of the Christian names of the Wyncoll 
family in England during the years 1500-1630 with the Chris- 
tian names of the Wincoll family in America and the Winchell

COATS OF ARMS 19 

family in America shows that the names John, Thomas, and 
Isaac are repeated frequently in the first and second families 
and are not used at all by Robert and only rarely by his chil- 
dren. On the contrary Robert used a group of Bible names 
five of which are not once found in the family of Wyncoll 
in England. 

4. The name Winchell seems to be derived from the name 
Winchelsea, while the name Wyncoll is almost certainly derived 
from the old form Wendecole. 1 That is, the names do not have 
a common origin, but, on the contrary, the farther back they 
are traced the less they resemble each other. 

5. The Winchell name has been traced back to 1412 (and 
in the form, de Winchelese, to 1194) and the Wyncoll name 
to about 1460 (and, in the form Wendecole, to 1361) without 
disclosing any connecting links. On the contrary, both families 
lived in England side by side for about two hundred years 
before the settlement of New England. The conclusion is that 
there is an independent source known for each family and no 
connection between them. 



COAT OF ARMS. 

In Burke's General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland 
and Wales the Winchell coat of arms is described in the follow- 
ing terms : 

"Winchell (London) Argent three eagles' wings, sable." 

This signifies that the background of the design is ' ' argent, ' ' 
that is, silver, or white, while the wings are ''sable" or black. 

It is illustrated by the frontispiece, which is from a photo- 
graph of a painted and framed drawing owned by the author 
of the first edition of this work. It was procured by him in 
1873 of James Usher, 7 Murray Street, New York. 2 According 
to documents quoted by Usher in authentication of this form 
of the Winchell coat of arms it appears to be traceable at least 
to the year 1635-1636, and to a licensed painter of arms named 
Winchell, who, with others, is mentioned in a "course" which 

1 The evidence of this derivation is given briefly on p. 48. 

2 The Winchell coat of arms was engraved by the University of Minne- 
sota, and in the form of a book-plate was placed in a collection of books 
presented to the University in 1911 by 1ST. H. Winchell. The collection is 
known as the Winchell Library of Geology of the University of Minnesota.

was brought by petition before Thomas, Earl of Arundall, 
recorded as follows in the Calendar of State Papers (Domestic), 
England, vol. cecvii, p. 38: 

82. "Petition of the Company of Painters Stainers of Lon- 
don, to Thomas, Earl of Arundall and Surrey, Earl Marshall 
of England. The Earl having declared his purpose to settle a 
course between the officers of Arms and the petitioners in a 
controversy depending in the Earl's court, they beg him to take 
these considerations to his view. The point in dispute was, 
whether the painters might paint arms without the allowance 
or license of the heralds. The painters contended that all 
painters were to be made free of their Company, and that this 
extended to painters of arms which had been allowed by the 
heralds, to whom belonged, it was conceded, the marshalling of 
arms, who had always employed free men of the petitioners' 
company in painting them. Petitioners refer to Camden's book 
of certificates remaining in the heralds' office in proof that 
divers unlicensed painters painted arms in his time, besides 
Winchel, Treswell and Kinobie whom only the heralds say 
Camden allowed. They also state that by an order made in 1618 
by the Lords Commissioners for the office of Lord Marshal, 
painters were permitted to paint arms well known and formerly 
allowed by heralds in their visitations without license. They 
point out that the charge will be great to the subject if gentle- 
men must have approbation of all escutcheons every time they 
have occasion to use them, and if painters be compelled to go 
to the heralds for allowance for arms whenever a sign is to 
be painted. They urge the antiquity of their art, and trace 
it back to Jeremiah and Ezekiel the prophets, and to Apelles 
in the time of Alexander the Great. Finally they complain 
of Dr. Rives who in a most contemptible manner in open court 
vilified and disgraced them." 

The presumption is that a painter of arms named Winchel, 1 
licensed by Camden, was the owner of the coat of arms de- 
scribed in Burke's General Armory. At any rate it is the only 
known source or foundation for the statement by Burke. 

The coat of arms of the family of Winchelsey is described 
thus, 2 "Ar. on a fesse of the same oarrulet gu. in chief 
cinquefoils vert." 

The following is the coat of arms of the town of Winchel-

join in pale, and as many hulks of ships ar." 

The following is the coat of arms of the Earl of Winchel- 
sea: 1 "Quarterly, first and fourth, az. a chev. betw. three 
garbs, or; second and third ar. a chev. betw. three griffins pass 
wings endorsed, sa. Crest, — A pegasus courant ar. winged,

Dexter, a pegasus ar. wings, mane and hoofs or. ducally gorged 
of the last; sinister a griffin, wings endorsed, sa. ducally gorged 
or. Mottoes. — Nil conscire sibi and virtus tutissima cassis." 

The arms of the Wyncoll family were granted at Cook's 
Visitation of Suffolk in 1577. They are described as follows: 

"Ermine, a chevron quarterly per chevron or and sable, be- 
tween three crescents, gules. Crest: On a wreath, an arm 
couped at the shoulder, embowed and erect from the elbow, 
habited in armour ppr., garnished or, holding in a hand of the 
first a spear of the second, headed argent." 



BRANCHES OF THE FAMILY IN AMERICA. 

It is certain that most of the representatives of the family 
of Winchell in America are descended from an English-speaking 
ancestry. There are traditions extant in some parts of the 
family to the effect that our ancestors were of Welsh nativity, 
and it is not at all unlikely that Saxons bearing our name 
migrated into Wales in the fifteenth or sixteenth century. In 
like manner members of the family, bearing the name Winchell, 
known to have been in Germany, are thought to have migrated 
thither from England. It may be that the name has been modi- 
fied to the form Wiinschel in Germany, though the German word 
wiinschel (derived from a word meaning wish — a compound 
wiinschelrute signifies divining rod) affords another possible 
origin for this name. In any case it is known that German 
emigrants have established some branches of the Winchell fam- 
ily in America. 

The name first reached this country when Robert Winchell 
immigrated to Massachusetts in 1634 or earlier. His descend- 
ants form what is called the Windsor Branch, the name being 
derived from Windsor, Connecticut, the home of Robert in this 
country. 

1 Burke 's General Armory. 



22 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

The next immigrant bearing our family name seems to have 
been Munson Winchell. He is reported to have come from Eng- 
land to join the British army in the French and Indian War; he 
settled at Goshen, Connecticut, whence comes the name (Goshen) 
of the branch of the family he founded. 

It is said that Samuel Winchell, who founded the Columbia 
Branch, was born in Scotland; the date was probably as early 
as about 1780. He settled at Columbia, Indiana. 

Justus Winchell, who came to America about the year 1777 
with Burgoyne's army, was born in Brunswick, Germany; he 
founded the Brunswick Branch. 

Georg Michael Winchell, who founded the Jockgrim Branch, 
was never in America, but several of his children, all born in 
Jockgrim, Bavaria, came to this country and settled in three 
different States. 

In summary, the Branches of the Winchell family in Amer- 
ica are as follows: 

I. Windsor Branch, founded in 1635 by Robert at Wind- 
sor, Conn. 

II. Columbia Branch, founded about 1800 by Samuel at 
Columbia, Fayette Co., Indiana. 

III. Goshen Branch, founded about 1760 by Munsen at 
Goshen, Conn. 

IV. Brunswick Branch, founded about 1780 by Justus, who 
was born in Brunswick, Germany. 

V. Jockgrim Branch, founded about 1850 by children of 
Georg Michael who were born in Jockgrim,' Bavaria. 

In the first edition of this work 18 sub-branches were recog- 
nized in the Windsor Branch. These sub-branches were each 
founded by a man who emigrated from the old home to some 
other part of this country, in most cases to the western 
"frontier," just as the Branches were founded by immigrants 
coming to this country at different times. With a few correc- 
tions and additions the sub-branches thus established are as 
follows : 

1. Berlin Sub-branch. Founded by 31 Hezekiah (born 
1697) in Berlin, Conn. Great-grandson of Robert. 

2. New Hampshire Sub-branch. Name of Founder unknown, 
supposed to be 34 Samuel (born 1690). Settled at or near 
Hartford, Conn., and probably removed to New Hampshire.

Many other sub-branches might be recognized on a similar 
basis. But facility and frequency of travel have gradually made 
divisions on such a ground of decreasing significance. The 
family is now scattered in nearly every state of the Union from 
Maine to California and from Florida to Washington, as well 
as from Minnesota to Texas. Therefore no attempt is made to 
separate these sub-branches from other parts of the Windsor 
Branch in the body of this work. But the preceding table ex- 
hibits the affinities which exist (or are presumed to exist) 
amongst these sub-branches. It includes the names of all males 
known to have had descendants along the lines of the several sub- 
branches until their dates of founding, respectively. Any doubt 
regarding continuity is indicated by a query. The Roman nu- 
merals at the heads of the columns of names indicate the genera- 
tion, counting Robert as the first. The dates accompanying the 
names refer to the births and deaths. The number at the left 
of a name is the serial number from the body of this work. 



GENEALOGIES. 



WINDSOR BRANCH. 

INTRODUCTION. 

Dorchester, Mass., was one of the earliest of the colony towns 
settled under the Charter of Massachusetts Bay. That charter 
was confirmed in 1629 ; and in 1630 (May 30) the ship Mary and 
John, sailing from Plymouth, England, came to anchor and 
landed the Dorchester immigrants at Nantasket, now known 
as Hull, the first of the fleet of 1630 to enter Massachusetts 
Bay. The Plymouth colony of " Pilgrims" from Holland, un- 
der Rev. John Robinson, had previously landed at Plymouth 
Rock in December, 1620, and Salem, Mass., had already been 
established about a year. There were also some English at 
Charlestown. The Dorchester settlers had been derived mostly 
from the counties of Devonshire, Dorsetshire and Somerset- 
shire, and their affiliations were originally with the English 
Established Church, though they were dissenters from its liturgy 
and ceremonials, — Presbyterians with a Congregational form 
of government. 

In 1635 a large migration took place from Dorchester and 
other towns to the Connecticut Valley, where, at Matianuck 
(now Windsor), a settlement had been made about a year pre- 
vious by a party from Plymouth, Mass., chartered as the 
" Plymouth Trading Company." The Dorchester party com- 
prised about sixty men with women and children, who went 
by land, driving their cattle before them. The larger part of 
the members of the original (Dorchester) church were of *this 
party. They united with the Plymouth people, and with others 
who came from Newtown (Cambridge) and Watertown soon 
after, in the firm establishment of what was at first called Dor- 
chester, but which, in 1637, was named "Windsor. 

Ancient Windsor. 

The accompanying map of "ancient Windsor" is based 
primarily on a map loaned for the purpose by Mrs. J. E. Gear

of Windsor, published on a circular broadsheet at the two hun- 
dred and fiftieth anniversary of the settlement of Windsor. 
The librarian of the Connecticut Historical Society at Hartford 
( Godard ) kindly furnished also the basis of the same map in the 
form of a photostat from Trumbull's Memorial History of Hart- 
ford County. 

From this can be determined approximately the location of 
Robert Winchell's home lot as assigned to him. But, though 
it is indicated near the point at which the road from Nathanael 
Bissell's ferry reaches the main street, running westward from 
the river, there is not perfect concord among the historic docu- 
ments as to its location. There are also discrepancies between 
the Trumbull map and that of Stiles published in his Ancient 
Windsor. An attempt has been made, while mainly designed to 
show the correct location of Robert Winchell's "home lot," to 
insert on this map sundry other additions and corrections de- 
termined from a somewhat careful perusal of the old records. 

The following description of ancient Windsor is from a 
broadsheet issued by the Connecticut Historical Society for a 
meeting at Windsor held in 1893. 

PLACES OF HISTORIC INTEREST IN WINDSOR, CONN. 

A bird's-eye view from the top of Stony Hill shows Plym- 
outh meadow (about 140 acres), on which the Plymouth peo- 
ple settled in 1633; also the Great Meadow (about 600 acres), 
on the borders of which the Dorchester people and the Pioneers 
of the Lords and Gentlemen settled in 1635. These meadows 
were the only land ' ' fit for immediate cultivation " ; all else was 
covered with a forest, hoary with age. These meadows had 
once an Indian population to cultivate them, in their rude way, 
without plows, oxen, axes, hoes, or other implements of iron. 
The ground had originally been cleared by burning the trees 
at the ground until they fell, and removing them afterwards by 
the same process ; but Ludlow says that now the Great Meadow 
"was void of inhabitants." The Indians in Windsor had been 
swept off by the smallpox a few years before, except a few at 
Wilson Station and at Poquonnock. 

From the foot of Stony Hill we turn east, and a ride of 
about a quarter of a mile brings us to the island, and from ' ' the 
acre on the hill to build upon," which Plymouth reserved when 
they quit-claimed their title to all the Great Meadow and a

part of Plymouth to the Dorchester people in 1637. Here we 
have a near view of Plymouth meadow and the site of Ply- 
mouth House, which stood near the river on the "43 acres and 
three- fourth acres excepted and reserved to the House of the 
said New Plymouth." This was sold in 1638 to Mr. Matthew 
Allen of Hartford, who for several years denied the jurisdic- 
tion of Windsor, or of the colony of Connecticut, and claimed to 
be an independent Plymouth settlement. 

Proceeding north, we pass the site of the Wolcott houses, 
Henry Wolcott, Sen., having been the first civil officer (con- 
stable) sworn in Windsor (he lived elsewhere before 1637), 
whose descendants have given us three governors for Connec- 
ticut, besides other statesmen, divines, doctors, and lawyers. 
The last house, as we proceed north, is the present residence 
of the Hon. Thomas W. Loomis of the Connecticut Historical 
Society, a lineal descendant of those who have owned and oc- 
cupied, from the first, the land originally granted to Joseph 
Loomis in 1639, and this, together with adjoining territory, 
has been secured for the Loomis Institute. 

Leaving the island, we come to the lot of Roger Ludlow, 
who came up with the Pioneers from Dorchester, Mass., in the 
summer of 1635 to prepare for the coming of their families the 
next spring. They were brooding over the Great Meadow when 
Brewster wrote his letter to Plymouth, July 6th, while searching 
for an open meadow elsewhere which would accommodate Dor- 
chester. The Lords and Gentlemen's Pioneers arrived in the 
meantime and attempted to take up the Great Meadow. 

In their report to their Lordships in England they say, ' ' the 
Plymouth men sent a letter discharging our men for meddling 
with it." . . . "I conceive that Mr. Ludlow was the chief man 
that hindered it," . . . "seeing the Dorchester men had taken 
up the best place before" we could get possession. 

Next we come to the house-lot of Samuel Allen, ancestor of 
our Mr. B. R. Allen. It was along this island road, between Mr. 
Ludlow's and Mr. Warham's that about a dozen first settlers 
built their houses. In the spring of 1638-9 there was a freshet 
"higher than the Indians had ever known," probably equal to 
1854, and "drowned many houses very deep," and later on 
these parties are found living on the higher part of their lots, 
the east side of the present Broad Street, and in 1642 a high- 
way was "laid across their home lots" for their accommoda- 
tion, and a road thence (from Grace church) to the Island 



32 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

road. The parties in interest were authorized to make any 
changes in the lay-out they should agree upon, and they evi- 
dently swerved from the heads of their house-lots when they 
reached Mr. Branker's lot (next north of the residence of H. S. 
Hay den) to avoid the swale which extended about halfway 
across the present green, and when the Upland road to Hart- 
ford was completed, 1645, they continued their road directly 
to the present high-way, and the people living in the old mill 
district made a short cut through the commons from the north- 
west corner of the present Green directly to ' ' the Upland road ' ' 
at the southwest corner. Before August 14, 1654, the space 
between the two paths had been thrown open (from the "Mill- 
way" road across the north end of the Green to the ferry) 
"southward for a spacious country way." This was while it 
was in commons and before any house-lots were laid out on the 
west side. For nearly a century and a half the main thorough- 
fare from Hartford north and to the Bay followed "the mill 
highway," from the northeast corner of Broad Street east to 
the Island road about seventy rods, thence north to Mr. War- 
ham's (David Rowland place), thence turning again to the east 
at right angles, about sixty rods to the ferry over the rivulet. 

Windsor had a school fund which was begun by John Fitch, 
who was "called to go forth against the Indians (Narragan- 
setts, 1657), and not knowing what disposition the Lord will 
make of me," gave his property for the school in Windsor. 
It was proposed to use this fund, to which additions had been 
made, for an academy to stand on one side of the river, and a 
union church on the other, when a causeway and a bridge 
should connect the two sides of the river. The causeway, built 
a century ago, was for that time so great a work that the State 
gave them a lottery to aid the enterprise. It looks a small 
affair to-day when compared with the railroad embankment 
across the same depression a few rods west of it. 

Rev. Mr. Warham's house stood a few rods southeast of the 
Congregational chapel (at the south end of the causeway), 
where the present Rowland house stands. 

When we reach the top of the hill after crossing the bridge 
we are within the Palisado. On three sides the palisades stood 
on the brow of the hill ; the enclosure was nearly a quarter of a 
mile square. At the time of the Pequot War, 1637, all the 
Dorchester people, and those of the Lords and Gentlemen's 
party lived within the Palisado. Mr. Ludlow "tarried by the 



PLACES OF HISTORIC INTEREST IN WINDSOR, CONN. 33 

stuff,' ' while Captain Mason and others went to fight the Pe- 
quots. Two weeks later he wrote to Mr. Pynehon at Agawam 
(Springfield) : "If the case be never so bad we can neither 
help you, nor you us. "We are so gleaned by that small fleet 
we sent out that those that remain are not able to supply our 
watches, which are day and night, that our people are scarce 
able to stand upon their legs." 

Palisado green was, until the causeway and bridge were built, 
nearly as wide at the north end as at the south, and the meet- 
ing house stood near the center of it. The green or common 
was on all sides 18 rods from the Palisades. The highway en- 
tered the Palisado at the southeast corner, and passed out at 
the northeast corner, where it does now. At the southeast en- 
trance lived Captain Mason of Pequot fame; at the northeast 
lived Matthew Grant, the ancestor of President Grant, the sur- 
veyor, the town clerk from 1652 to 1681, and the man who left 
more valuable historical data than all his fellow townsmen put 
together. 

In the corner of the Palisado next to Matthew Grant stood 
a house which belonged to the town, and here stood the town 
barn, which was the tax collector's bank of deposit for the 
town taxes, when they were payable in "wheat, peas, and In- 
dian corn." 

The road north from the Palisado has several angles in it 
made to correspond with the angles in the meadow hill, and it 
was in the brow of this meadow hill ("sandy bank," Matthew 
Grant calls it) , that Mr. Ludlow and his men built their cellars 
(dug-outs) that first summer and autumn, and hurried on their 
families, "their cows, horses, and swine" before winter, to be 
found in actual possession when further orders should reach 
here from the Lords and Gentlemen in England, who had the 
advantage, which a charter could give them which the Massa- 
chusetts men had not. Cold weather had set in before they 
arrived, their stock of winter supplies had miscarried, the river 
was frozen over, and starvation stared them in the face. Sup- 
posing their vessels were frozen in below, most of them took up 
a tedious winter march in the vain hope of finding somewhere 
their much-needed provision. Fortunately they found a vessel 
at the mouth of the river which took them home "in five days, 
which was a great mercy of God, or they would have all died, 
as some did." A few families remained with scant provision, 
supplemented with acorns and such other food as the place af- 



34 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

forded. They had made all too little provision for their cattle, 
and many of them died. The Lords and Gentlemen's party had 
built themselves "a sufficient house," and with their wives and 
children were amply supplied, as doubtless the Plymouth com- 
pany were for the winter, but they could do little for others. 
Several Dorchester families and the Stiles families were cer- 
tainly here through the winter of 1635-6. Is it certain that 
there were any families in Hartford or Wethersfield? 

These settlers had each their quota of ''meadow" between 
their house-lots and the river, generally of the same width as 
their home-lot. Those who settled on the Island road south 
of the rivulet, and some in the Palisado had their quota in the 
lower end of the Great Meadow. None of the Dorchester people 
took up land on Plymouth meadow until after Plymouth sold 
them a part of it in 1637. 

A mile north of the rivulet stands the Stoughton house on 
the original Stoughton lot, which was taken up before any 
houses were erected on the island and the Stoughton family, 
whose ancestors have owned it from the first, still own it. On 
a part of this lot stood a stone house known as the "old stone 
fort." Persons living thirty years ago remember it. IX was 
undoubtedly considered a good place of refuge if the Indians 
ever attacked the town, but no evidence appears which shows 
that it was ever garrisoned, as were several houses on the east 
side of the Connecticut River at the time of King Philip's War, 
1675-6. 

A quarter of a mile farther on is the lot now owned by Mr. 
Strickland, which was "granted" to Governor Haynes of Hart- 
ford, "by purchase of George Hull." With it he bought Hull's 
rights to the undivided lands, and had several outlying lots, in- 
cluding "Mr. Haynes' great lot." 

The Chief Justice Ellsworth place occupies the Stiles lot, 
occupied by sufferance of the Dorchester men, 1635, while in 
charge of the interests of the Lords and Gentlemen, who after- 
wards abandoned their purpose to come here. Macaulay says 
that Cromwell and Hampden were prevented from going to 
Connecticut by the government officers after they were on board 
the ship. Francis Stiles and his two brothers were, before 1640, 
recognized as inhabitants, and had their quota of land by the 
same rules as others. 

The ferry across the Connecticut River was but about sixty 
rods above the Ellsworth place. The road is described on the 



PLACES OF HISTORIC INTEREST IN WINDSOR, CONN. 35 

other side of the river as passing over certain men's lots, ''and 
over the brook and so on over other brooks to the Bay. ' ' John 
Bissell was the ferryman, and was succeeded by his son, John, 
Jr., who kept it until it was given to his brother, Nathaniel, at 
Scantic, a mile below, where it is still called Bissell 's ferry. 
Directly opposite to the way to tne John Bissell's ferry stands 
the model schoolhouse, erected fifty years ago under the aus- 
pices of a former president of the Connecticut Historical So- 
ciety, the Hon. Henry Barnard, when he was Commissioner of 
Schools for Connecticut. It has been copied all over Connecti- 
cut and in every state of the Union, and in several foreign coun- 
tries. 

William Hayden 's house was "as far up as any house-lots 
were laid out," before 1654, or the four-rod road extended. A 
private way, very crooked, was made by certain men — Governor 
Haynes among them — to Pine meadow, a mile above, which was 
open to cultivation, and without Indians. William Hayden was 
one of the first settlers of Hartford, and was conspicuous in the 
Pequot fight. His sword is treasured in the historical rooms. 
He removed from Hartford to Windsor in 1640, and to this 
spot in 1645. This was at the upper end of the meadow, and 
there was no attraction for settlers beyond. His son Daniel 
succeeded him, and his four grandsons possessed all the land 
beyond, and every house beyond, down to the close of the Revo- 
lutionary War, was owned and occupied by Haydens, and the 
neighborhood was called Haydentown. 

The road to Agawam was via Bissell 's Ferry and Warehouse 
Point. When Northampton was settled, 1654, a highway was 
needed on this side of the Connecticut River, and to avoid the 
swamps and the necessity of building bridges, the road was 
laid across the plains, where there is not a swamp or stream 
to cross for five miles, and this continued to be the great thor- 
oughfare north and to Boston down to 1815. 

When Washington was on his tour through New England, 
he wrote in his journal, under date of October 21, 1789 : 

"Between Windsor and Sumeld you pass through a level, 
barren plain for several miles/' 

1 ' The old pear tree ' ' was set out by Samuel Hayden, grand- 
son of William, who built here in 1708. It was "an old tree" 
a hundred years ago, and is probably nearly or quite 175 years 
old. 

The brick house opposite was built before the Revolution by 



36 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

Captain Nathaniel Hayden, a grandson of Samuel, and now 
occupied by Samuel, a grandson of Nathaniel. Captain Nath- 
aniel Hayden commanded the 23 " Lexington Alarm" soldiers 
who went from Windsor, and served as Captain at New York 
in 1776, and elsewhere. 

The Levi Hayden house was built in 1737. The oak tree 
beside it had stood there in the midst of a forest many years. 
This house was built by Sergeant Samuel Hayden. 

"The old Pond" was the source of supply for the Windsor 
Aqueduct Company. From this point they had laid their water 
pipe (3-inch bore) through the street three miles, to the present 
Windsor Bridge. This water supply was in use one hundred 
years ago, but was only a moderate success for a few years. 

Around this pond a colony of colored people have settled 
since "de wah." They number 60 or 70, have a church organi- 
zation and minister, and hold camp-meetings. 

THE WINCHELL HOMESTEAD AT WINDSOR, CONN. 

The approximate location of the Winchell homestead at 
Windsor is well known. It was visited by the late Alexander 
Winchell, July 21, 1867, and the following descriptive notes are 
from his diary: 

"After a late breakfast I walked up the street — turned off 
along the old original road — crossed the Farmington River, 
passed the old Primitive Society's meeting house, and the an- 
cient 'burying ground,' — continued on and passed some very 
large old shade trees, mostly elms and maples. I saw, however, 
one buttonwood, which at the height of the dooryard fence by 
which it stood, had a diameter of six feet and seven inches in 
one direction, and five feet in the other. I saw also an elm 
on the opposite (east) side of the street which must have been 
five feet in diameter. Continued on to the Bissell's Ferry road, 
on the south side of which lay the 'home lot' of Robert Win- 
chell. Here I was invited by Mr. E. S. Clapp, who lives opposite, 
to ride to church with him, and I did so. We attended the 
Methodist church, which is near the depot and opposite the 
Windsor hotel. I heard Mr. Cushing read Wesley's sermon on 
'Evil Speaking.' . . . 

"After a midday lunch I returned, not being satisfied with 
what I saw in the morning. I walked again to Bissell's Ferry 
road, not less than a mile, and turned down to the river. The 



THE WINCHELL HOMESTEAD AT WINDSOR, CONN. 37 

road takes precisely the turn indicated in Stiles' diagram. The 
bank whence we descend from the 'upland' to the 'swamp' is 
not over 20 rods from the highway. The swamp is a grassy 
marsh four to six rods wide along the foot of the bank, where 
the water stands after an overflow. Crossing this, the road rises 
four or five feet and passes over the alluvial bottom made by 
the overflows of the Connecticut, and called in the old records 
'The Great Meadow.' This is, at this place, about half a mile 
broad and is now occupied by fields of grass, corn, wheat and 
potatoes. A few aged apple trees are scattered along the south 
side of the road, standing within the field. The different crops 
in the Great Meadow are not fenced off, and they are excluded 
from the road only by a wire fence. 

"It caused me many interesting reflections to walk over the 
ground cultivated 225 years ago by my earliest American an- 
cestor, and afterwards occupied by Nathaniel for many years. 
As a memorial of the place I preserved a flower and leaf of a 
vetch (Vicia sativa) which I found growing near the river's 
bank. 

1 ' The present Presbyterian church building is new, neat, and 

white in color. Another very old structure stands near by and 

sundry old rickety sheds and other structures cluster around it. 

"I strolled into the old 'burying ground' — the original one 

— and made the following notes: 

' ' A fine brownstone monument : ' Oliver W. Wells, d. 3 July, 
1866, aet. 70.' 

"Our darling Freddie! 
"He's not dead; our Freddie sleeps. 

"He'll waken by and by 
"And we may meet our darling yet 

"An angel in the sky. 

' ' Here lyeth Ephraim Huit, sometimes teacher to ye church 
of Windsor, who dyed September 4, 1644. ' 

"Who when hee lived wee drew our vitall breath 
"Who when he dyed his dying was our death 
"Who was the stay of state, the churches staff 
"Alas, the times forbid an epitaph. 

' ' This epitaph of the old emigrant from England is upon the 
face of a broken stone slab which forms the side of a raised 
square tomb or sarcophagus. 

"The slab on the opposite side bears an inscription to the

memory of John Warham, who came with the original flock to 

Dorchester in 1630 and thence to Windsor in 1635. Died Apr. 1, 

1670. ' Erected by this church, 1842. '

1 ' I have examined nearly every stone in this cemetery in hope 
of finding the grave of Winchell, but without success. Robert 
Winchell died here, as also probably Nathanael, and also Nath- 
anael, John and David, sons of Nathanael. 

"Here is an old cemetery, 220 years old, and though it en- 
closes probably less than 20 acres, and has been used to this 
time, it is not yet filled. " 



KELATION BETWEEN THE WINCHELL AND WINCOLL 

FAMILIES. 

By N. H. Winchell. 

In Stiles' History and Genealogies of Ancient Windsor, pub- 
lished in 1859, are to be found many of the historic facts re- 
specting the family of Robert Winchell on which the following 
sketch depends. Others are from the ' ' town records ' ' and other 
publications. Winchell and Wincoll were confounded, and were 
employed interchangeably for the same individual. The exist- 
ence of these orthographies probably resulted from the differ- 
ent anglicising of the original Saxon name, Winkel, and largely 
from the impress of the French in softening the hard sound of 
c; and the confounding of them in the records, both in Eng- 
land and in America, is entirely in keeping with the looseness 
and irregularities of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. 

Whether Robert Winchell, one of the earliest of the name 
known in America, and the probable progenitor of nine-tenths 
of those bearing the name in America, or any Winchell, was 
on board the Mary and John in 1630 is uncertain, but there is 
documentary proof that in 1632 a woman named Elizabeth 
Winchell, at the age of 52 years, came from London in the 
Rebecca with John Wincoll, aged 13, who is reported to have 
been the son of Thomas Wincoll, who came over earlier and 
presumably brought his wife, Beatrice, with him. On good 
authority (Savage) it is presumed that Elizabeth's name was 
Wincoll, and that she was the aunt of the boy who came with 
her. The same event is recorded, however, in another place in 
which both names are Winchell, as follows : ' ' Theis underwrit- 
ten names are to be transported to N. E. embarqued in the 
Rebecca p'rd. 

1 ' Elizabeth Winchell 52 " Wm. Swayne, aged . . 16 

"Jo. Winchell 13 "ffrancis Swayne 14" 

This is taken from a book in the Rolls Office, Chancery Lane, 
London, on the cover of which is this inscription: 

"A Booke of Entrie for Passengers by ye Commission and 

39- 



40 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

Souldiers according to ye Statutie passing beyond the seas, be- 
gun at Christmas, 1631, and ending at Christmas, 1632." (New 
Eng. Hist, and Gen. Regist, Vol. XIV, p. 307.) 

This Elizabeth Winchell (or Wincoll) was probably the wife 
of John Wincoll (or Winchell), who was at Salem in 1631, and 
she was doubtless selected as guardian during the voyage of the 
three youths who sailed with her. This is presumptive evidence 
(but not conclusive) that John Wincoll "of Salem" came with 
the emigrants in the Mary and John in 1630. 

There is a reasonable tradition which is supported by some 
facts, that the Winchells (or Wincolls) of eastern Massachu- 
setts and of Windsor, Conn., are descendants of three brothers 
who came to America, and if they came at the same time it was, 
on the above evidence of the date of the coming of John, in the 
year 1630, on board the Mary and John, but no other evidence 
of the coming of Eobert on the Mary and John has been found. 
These brothers were Robert, John and Thomas. Robert was for 
a time apparently at Dorchester. John settled at first at Salem 
with his father, and Thomas at Watertown. It is stated, how- 
ever, in Pope's Pioneers of Massachusetts (but not well authen- 
ticated) that a Thomas Wincoll arrived only in 1642. The 
descendants of John and Thomas retained at first the name 
Wincoll and formed a considerable family whose relationships 
have been traced out. (See The Wincolls in America.) There 
seem, however, to have been some of these who spelled their 
name Winchell, since, as will be seen in the sequel, there are 
scattered families which cannot be connected with Robert, who 
was the only one of the brothers who persisted in the spelling, 
Winchell. 

Dismissing for the present the question of the consanguinity 
between Robert (Wincoll) Winchell and the Wincolls, let us 
now direct our inquiries to Robert's origin and history. It 
has been stated already that Robert was at Dorchester in 1635. 
There is a record quoted, as follows, from the History of the 
Town of Dorchester, 1859, p. 39, viz. : 

"Robert Winchell was in Dorchester in 1635, and moved to 
Windsor, had children, Phoebe, baptized Mar. 29, 1638; Mary, 
Sept. 5, 1641; David, Oct. 22>, 1643; Joseph, Apr. 5, 1646; 
Martha, June 18, 1648; Benjamin, July 11, 1642 (1652). Mr. 
Winchell died Jan. 21, 1667." 

It might be inferred from this that Robert was a citizen of 
Dorchester. Yet the name Winchell (nor Wincoll) does not 



RELATION BETWEEN THE WINCHELL AND WINCOLL FAMILIES 41 

occur in the Narrative History of Good Old Dorchester (Orcutt), 
1893; nor in Records of the First Church at Dorchester, by a 
committee appointed for the purpose; nor in a "list of those 
made freemen" from May 18, 1631, to the date of Church rec- 
ords, Aug. 23, 1633; and finally, in a "list of the first settlers 
of the town," in the History of Dorchester, the name is not 
found. Although there is therefore no evidence that he came 
with the first migration to Dorchester in 1630, nor indeed that 
he was a citizen of Dorchester, there is evidence that he was 
made a freeman. 1 In a History of the First Baptist Church of 
Boston, from 1665 to 1818, by Rev. James M. Winchell, Boston, 
1819, it is stated that the Town Records of Dorchester under 
date of Jan. 4, 1635, contain this entry :-*- "16 acres are set off 
to Robert Winchell, between Roxbury and Dorchester (at the 
bounds)." 2 Roxbury lies between Boston and Dorchester, and 
was under the jurisdiction of the General Court of Massachu- 
setts Bay Colony. That Robert was not at this date a citizen 
of Dorchester but lived either at Salem where his parents 
(Wincoll) were, or at Boston, is indicated by the act of the 
General Court of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay, 6 May, 1635, 
in which his name appears as Robert Wincall, ordering that he 
be made a freeman. 

In the Records of the Governor and Company of the Massa- 
chusetts Bay in New England, Vol. I, 1628-1641, p. 370, amongst 
Miscellaneous Records, is a list of persons made free May 6, 
1635. This list includes Robert Wincall. 

In Savage's Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of 
New England, Vol. IV, is an account of "Wincol, Wincall or 
Winkle," but the name Winchell is not found. Yet Robert is 
mentioned thus: "Robert, Mass. but of what town can hardly 
be judged, as all that is known of him is his admission as free- 
man May 6, 1635." 

Except for the statement that Robert Winchell "was at 
Dorchester in 1635" by the History of the Town of Dorchester, 
the authority for which is not given, there is not certain evi- 
dence, so far as I can find, of his ever living there. Prior to 
his removal to Windsor he lived apparently either at Boston or 
Salem, and he had barely had time to get settled on the land 
allotted to him ' ' at the bounds betwixt Roxbury and Dorchester, 

1 A * ' freeman ' ' of Massachusetts was one who had the right to vote.

at the great hill betwixt the said bounds," before he went to 
Windsor. He received his land in January, was made freeman 
in May, 1635, and migrated to Windsor, the same year, or 
in 1636. 

. In the obscurity that surrounds the date of arrival of Robert 
Winchell in America, and of the place of his residence prior to 
his going to Windsor, there appears to be some reason to suggest 
that he was in some way related to the Elizabeth who came in 
1632 in the Rebecca, as already stated, with three boys. It is 
highly improbable that a woman of this age (52) should come 
with a young boy without having relatives here before, and it is 
probable, as already intimated, that Robert Winchell was in 
some way related to the young John Wincoll who accompanied 
her. In that case Robert (and his presumed brother Thomas 
at Salem) came in 1629, or 1630, probably with Governor Endi- 
cott of Massachusetts Bay Colony. The arrival of Elizabeth and 
her young nephew therefore reunited the family, of which the 
father (Thomas) and the older brother (John of Salem) had 
come two or three years before. It was no uncommon thing 
that families were thus separated temporarily, a fact which 
still is illustrated by the migration at different dates of portions 
of the same Scandinavian family. 

For further discussion of this interesting question the reader 
may consult the following sections regarding the Wincoll family 
in England and America. 



THE WINCOLLS IN AMERICA. 

By N. H. Winchell. 

According to Savage's Genealogical Dictionary of New Eng- 
land, there was a John Wincoll at Salem, Mass., in 1631, prob- 
ably the same as mentioned in a letter by Gov. Endicott to Gov. 
Winthrop Apr. 12, 1631. Also according to A Booke of Entrie 
for Passengers by ye Commission and Souldiers passing beyond 
the Seas (New Eng. Hist, and Gen. Register, vol. XIV, p. 307) 
a boy of the name of John Winchell (or Wincoll) who was 13 
years of age, came in 1632 in the ship Rebecca, accompanied by 
a woman (Elizabeth Winchell, or Wincoll) who was 52 years 
of age. 

This boy John is probably not the same as " John Winkell" 
to whom on Feb. 26, 1636, at Watertown was allotted land as 
one of the townsmen of the town, "at the Bevenbroke Plains, 
divided and allotted out by the freemen to all the townsmen 
then inhabiting, being 106 in number, " for he was then only 
17 years of age. (Convers Francis' Historical Sketch of Water- 
town, p. 131.) 

According to Genealogies and History of Watertown, by 
Henry Bond, a John Wincoll * was made freeman in 1646. If 
this was the John Wincoll who came with Elizabeth in 1632 
(not 1635) of which there is little or no doubt, he was then 27 
years of age, the same who, after a residence at Watertown, 
went to Kittery in Maine (1662) and became a well known and 
influential citizen and military officer, first at Watertown and 
later at Kittery. In all cases he is called a "son of Thomas/ ' 
who was a proprietor of Watertown in 1636-37. His wife's 
name also was Elizabeth, as shown in Bond's History of Water- 
town, in connection with the transfer of lands at Watertown, 
in 1672, to one William Price, and in Cambridge to Daniel 
Warren. John inherited his father's lands at Watertown in 

J In Volume VII of the Maine Hist. Gen. Recorder, p. 207, is a record 
of a town meeting at Kittery, Me., 18 Dec, 1652, when John Wincoll was 
chosen one of the selectmen. This Wincoll is Winchell in the index of the 
volume. 

43 



44 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

1657. He left descendants in Maine. It appears evident, there- 
fore, that there were two men named John Wincoll. 

If the foregoing sketches the younger John, what became of 
the older one, who was at Salem in 1631? He must have been 
56 years of age (assuming that he was about the same age as 
his wife) at the same date (1636) as the allotment of land 
to Thomas at Watertown, and would naturally remove with 
Thomas if he were his brother. At least, besides the boy John, 
we know of no other John Wincoll. He also bought land at 
Watertown (Town Records, p. 14), and perhaps at Cambridge. 
He therefore is confounded with the younger John by Bond, 
who recognizes but one John Wincoll. The record runs smoothly, 
as Bond gives it, but it must be considered an anomaly, on 
Bond 's hypothesis, that a young man from Salem should become 
so soon the owner of so much rea] estate, unless by inheritance. 
Therefore the earlier portion of the land transactions of " John 
Wincoll" of Bond may be assigned to "John of Salem," and 
the later portion to John ' ' son of Thomas. ' ' We have no record 
of the date or place of death of John of Salem, but it was most 
likely at Watertown and between 1638 and 1662, when the 
younger John went to Kittery. The only record which I can 
presumptively refer to John of Salem, aside from the early land 
transactions at Watertown, is in an account of the expenses for 
1650 of the treasurer (Shearman) of Watertown in the Water- 
town Town Records, I ; p. 25, viz. : 

Paid "to Winckoll and harmton 6s 9d 
"to ould Winckoll 6 —" 

It is not stated for what these sums were paid, but it seems 
likely that the last mentioned was paid to John Wincoll, the elder, 
for at that date both Thomas of Watertown and John of Water- 
town were living at Watertown. If the land at Watertown 
owned by John Wincoll of Salem passed by inheritance to 
Thomas of Watertown, and if the estate of Thomas was inherited 
by John of Watertown, both of which are very probable, and 
the latter a matter of record, that might explain the method 
by which John of Watertown became so large a land holder 
prior to his departure for Kittery. At the "first inventory of 
the grants and possessions" in the Watertown Town Records, 
Thomas is credited with 14 pieces of land, aggregating 343 acres, 
including his "homestall of 24 acres," and John's land then 
(1646), at the "3rd inventory" amounted to 38 acres, in 5 



THE WINCOLLS IN AMERICA 45 

parcels, all in Watertown (p. 127). Thomas of Watertown, here 
presumed to have been the father of John of Watertown, died 
June 10, 1657, at about 70 years of age, and that would allow 
his son the period of 5 years in which to settle the estate of his 
father prior to his permanent removal to Kittery. The wife 
of the elder John was Elizabeth, 52 years of age in 1632, and 
the boy who came with her was the son of Thomas, and there- 
fore as presumed by Savage, was her nephew. It is necessary 
to assume, therefore, that John of Salem was an elder brother 
of Thomas of Salem. 

There is another line of evidence that there were two John 
Wincolls, viz. : If the wife of John of Salem, at least 52 years 
old in 1632, was the wife of John of Watertown (and Kittery) 
she lived to the age of 94 years and on her death at Kittery, 
about 1674 (still living Sept. 20, 1673) her husband who was 
probably no younger than she was, settled a dowry (Feb. 29, 
1675) on a second wife, Marie Etherington, whom he married, 
and had a son by her, viz.: 

John Wincoll, Jr., b. about 1676 (Marie died before June 5, 
1679). 

Now, were there two Thomases? According to the first edi- 
tion there were two, viz. : 

1. Thomas of Salem, son of John of Salem. 

2. Thomas of Watertown, whose sons are presumed to have 
been Humphrey and John. 

So far as I can see, Humphrey Winchell (or Wincoll) is a 
myth. I have found nothing at all about him except what A. 
Winchell has stated in the first edition. There was a man named 
Humphrey Wincett at Cambridge, as shown in the Records of 
the Town and Selectmen of Cambridge, p. 9, and he was allotted 
4 acres. I am disposed to believe that in some way Wincett 
has been confounded with Wincoll by A. Winchell. 

That there was a Thomas Wincoll at Salem in 1631 is stated 
by Felt's Annals of Salem, vol. I, p. 171. If he was the same 
as Thomas of Watertown, as is almost certain, and died in 
1657, at the age of "about 70," he was 44 in 1631 when at 
Salem. Beatrice was his wife, according to the Watertown 
Town Records and "dyed the eleventh of June, 1655, aged about 
80 years. ' ' That is, she died two years before her husband, who 
was said to have died at the age of ' ' about 70. ' ' That Thomas 



46 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

was not a son of John of Salem, is evident from a consideration 
of his age, 44 years in 1631, in comparison with that of John's 
wife who at the same date was 52 years of age, and must have 
been not yet in her " teens" when Thomas was born. 

Thomas went to Watertown in 1642 (Pope's Pioneers of 
Massachusetts) though he seems to have been granted a home 
lot in 1636 (according to Bond's Genealogies and History of 
Watertown, p. 1016) when he was about 49 years of age and 
"was possessed of some of the habiliments of a gentleman." 
He was not yet a proprietor in 1633 when he appeared before 
the General Court of Massachusetts, but was styled yeoman, 
evidently still living at Salem. 

In all the data, so far as I have seen them, although there 
are some ambiguities, I can find no valid reason to infer that 
there were two Thomas Wincolls, nor that either John of Salem, 
or Thomas of Watertown was married twice. It is however a 
singular coincidence that each John had a wife named Elizabeth. 

(1) John of Salem (and Watertown) and his wife Elizabeth. 

(2) Thomas of Salem (and Watertown) and his wife 
Beatrice. 

(3) John of Watertown (and Kittery) and his wife 
Elizabeth. 

In the foregoing is evidence of the coming to America of two 
brothers named Wincoll, of their living simultaneously at Salem 
from 1631 to 1636, and of their migration to Watertown, 1636- 
1642. 

As to Robert Winchell (also called Wincall in the records of 
the General Court of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay, by which 
he was made freeman 6 May, 1635) it remains to determine 
whether he was in any way related by blood to the Wincolls of 
Salem and of Watertown. The earliest recorded notice that 
we have of him is that of Jan. 4, 1635, when he was given 16 
acres "between Roxbury and Dorchester, at the bounds," or, 
as stated in another place, "on the hill, not to take in any 
meadow." This is probably that which later was called Blue 
Hill, and was occupied in 1775 by the Division of General 
Thomas in the defense of the harbor of Boston. 1 Why he 
changed his name to Winchell, after he was made freeman, is 

1 See "Map of the Seat of War" constructed soon after the battle of 
Bunker Hill. 



THE WINCOLLS IN AMERICA 47 

a matter simply of conjecture. He was made freeman as 
Wincall. He received his Dorchester land as Winchill, and 
settled at Windsor, Ct., as Winchill. But there can be hardly 
any question that at Dorchester and later at Windsor, Ct., he 
was the same man who was later known only as Robert Winchell 
(or Winch el). 

There is no known evidence that he ever occupied his lot 
given him by the Dorchester people, nor that he ever lived at 
Dorchester. Stiles says he "was at Dorchester" in 1635, but 
that statement is derived from a general History of the Town 
of Dorchester, 1859, p. 39, prepared by a committee, and seems 
to have been based on the fact that he was assigned land on 
Blue Hill in January of that year. This committee give no 
other particulars of his being at Dorchester, but they got in- 
formation concerning him after his removal to Windsor, derived 
evidently only from the church records at Windsor, since they 
do not mention the birth of his two elder sons, Nathanael and 
Jonathan, who were born prior to his going to Windsor. This 
is strong evidence that he did not live at all at Dorchester, and 
that he did not enter upon the land "at the bounds between 
Roxbury and Dorchester." 

Where did he live at the time of the birth of his eldest two 
children? Assuming that he was then in America, the answer 
must be either Boston or Salem. The other Wincolls were at 
Salem and it is not likely that he was ignorant of that fact. 
In that case it would be the most probable residence for a 
young man with a wife and two small boys. This however was 
a period of general unrest and migration, whether at Dor- 
chester, Salem or Cambridge. People went from nearly all the 
towns of Massachusetts to the valley of the Connecticut. 

If prior to his going to Windsor (1635-36) we allow four 
years after his marriage for the birth of his eldest two sons, 
his marriage was about 1631, the year when we know Thomas 
and John (the elder) were at Salem. He was younger than 
either of the others, and received his Dorchester allotment when 
he had two little boys. The required age for admission to free- 
manship was 21 years, and it is probable that he was married 
at about that age, not later than 1631. 

Hence the circumstances seem to point to the probable valid- 
ity of the common tradition of "three brothers" of the name 
Wincoll, arriving at Salem at about the same date (1630 or 
1631). They left no descendants at Salem. 



THE EARLY GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY OF WYNCOLL IN 

ENGLAND. 

BY A. N. WINCHELL. 

The Wyncolls formed a prominent family centered about Waldingfield, 
Suffolk, England, in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The earliest 
man certainly known to belong to the family was John Wyncoll (or Win- 
coll), a clothier in Little Waldingfield, near Sudbury, Suffolk, at the opening 
of the sixteenth century. He was party to a grant of a messuage in Little 
Waldingfield in October, 1504. He was a devout Eoman Catholic, as shown 
by his will in which he bequeathes his soul to ' ' our Blessed Lady St. Mary 
and to all the Heavenly Company of Heaven,' ' and makes several bequests 
for church purposes. He was wealthy and owned land not only in Little 
Waldingfield, but also in Groton, in Sudbury, on "Hompell Green" (Hem- 
pill Green), and at Bildeston. 

An outline genealogy of the family, beginning with John, is given in 
the Visitations of Leicestershire of 1619 (Harleian Society, Vol. 2, 1870, 
p. 156). Information concerning the property holdings of the Wyncolls may 
be found in the Manors of Suffolk, 1905, pp. 243-246, and in the His- 
tory of Essex, Vol. I, 1836, p. 483. But the most elaborate account of the 
family is contained in a volume entitled: The Wyncolls of Suffolk and 
Essex, by Col. C. E. Wyncoll, published in London in 1912, by means of 
which this account has been corrected and extended. 

John Wyncoll, the clothier of Little Waldingfield, Suffolk, was prob- 
ably descended from a family first mentioned in the records as "Wende- 
cole" in the year 1361, when John Wendecole is named in the Court Eolls 
of Moules Eleigh, a manor about three miles from Little Waldingfield. Five 
years later John Wendecole is named as a taster of bread and ale and also 
as an "Afferor. " In 1368, he is named as Chief Pledge, and continues in 
the office for at least five years. In 1372 he became owner of "Kyngges- 
fen. " In 1413 a John Wendecole, presumably the son of the preceding, 
was fined for an assault and also for not attending the Court, and John 
Wendecole the younger was fined for not flushing his ditch. John the elder 
died in 1420 and John the younger (who purchased certain land in 1419) 
is named as an executor of the will. Both men are named as Chief Pledges 
the same year; this time the name is spelled Wyndecole. Later, in the 
Terrier (an old document in the Public Eecord Office) a name spelled 
' ' Wyncolles ' ' seems to refer to the same family. In 1391 Alan Wyndecole 
and Mabel, his wife, obtained land at Langham, near Colchester, which 
they sold in 1428; this land was called Wyndecoles in 1443, Wincolls in 
1593 and 1609, and Wynkoles in 1620. According to the Court Bolls of 
Milden, Suffolk, John ' ' Wyncolne ' ' paid rent for land near Milden in 1492 ; 
this may well have been 1 John. Hugh Wyncolne was mentioned the same 
year. In the same Court Eolls in 1543 there is mention of Eoger "Wyn-

nearly all his father's property. He married at Woolverstone, near 
Ipswich, Suffolk, on June 25, 1581, Mary Gawdy, who was baptized March 
10, 1562, and was the daughter of Sir Thomas Gawdy of Gawdy Hall, 
Norfolk, Judge of the Queen's Bench, and of Anne Spring, a descendant 
of Sir John Spring, of Hitcham, and Sir William Waldegrave, of Small- 
bridge. Isaac lived first at Woolverstone, then at Little Waldingfield, and 
finally at Twinstead Hall, in Essex, which he seems to have built; his 
arms were reproduced in one of the windows. Isaac was granted special 
livery in 1580; he leased Ten Hall manor in Suffolk in 1585. His wife,

67 John (32 Koger, 9 Soger, 2 John, 1 John). 

67 John Wyncoll, of Waldingfield, was born about October, 1583, being 
less than 6 years old at his father's death. He married Awdrey, daughter 
of Edmund Chaplin, a clothier of Little Waldingfield, whose will was 
proved on Feb. 8, 1618, by 67 John Wyncoll and Thomas Bryan; George 
Wyncoll and Francis Wyncoll were witnesses. John was granted livery in 
1607; he was living in 1619. 

96 John, not yet 14 in 1618; seems to have died before his father 

who was survived by two daughters only, Susan and Martha 
(See Manors of Suffolk, p. 243). 

97 Anne, not yet 14 in 1618; seems to have died before her father. 

98 Susan, bapt. Little Waldingfield, Oct. 19, 1617. 

99 Martha, bapt. Little Waldingfield, July 13, 1619. 

87 Isaac (54 Isaac, 19 John, 4 Eoger, 1 John). 

87 Isaac Wyncoll of Twinstead Hall, Essex, was baptized there January 
1, 1594; he was the only son and heir of his father, Isaac. He married 
Mary, daughter and co-heiress of Thomas Waldegrave, of Ferrars in 
Bures, Essex; by his marriage he obtained the manors of Peyton Hall 
and Eavensfield between Pebmarsh and Lamarsh, Essex. Isaac was member 
of a committee of Parliament in 1644; he inherited Twinstead manor in 
1638; he was buried at Bures on August 6, 1650. 

100 Isaac, d. young, bur. Twinstead, 24 July, 1620. 

101 Thomas, bapt. Bures, Feb. 5, 1621. 

102 Elizabeth, bapt. Bures, Oct. 23, 1626. 

103 Waldegrave, bapt. Bures, Nov. 6, 1628 ; bur. there Nov. 20, 1628. 

104 Penelope, bapt. Bures, July 8, 1620; m. Isaac Hubbard, of 

Pebmarsh, Essex. 

105 Margarite, bapt. Twinstead, Nov. 16, 1634; bur. there Nov. 27, 

1637. 

106 Mary, bur. Twinstead, Nov. 8, 1638. 

107 Hannah, d. unmarried, Feb. 25, 1680; bur. Twinstead. 



Sixth Generation. 

101 Thomas (87 Isaac, 54 Isaac, 19 John, 4 Roger, 1 John). 

101 Thomas Wyncoll was baptized at Bures, Essex, on February 5, 1621 ; 
he was lord of the manors of Twinstead, Netherhall, Peyton Hall, and 
Eavensfield, and also owned land in Great Henny. He held court at Twin- 
stead on Jan. 17, 1654. He married, first, Mary, eldest daughter of Sir 
William and Mary Cooke, of Broome Hall, Norfolk, by whom he had three 
children, Mary, Isaac, and Penelope. She died Dee. 27, 1658. He married, 
second, Mary, daughter of Joseph and Bridget Spring of Shalford, Essex. 
He moved to Dedham before his death, which occurred there Jan. 16, 1675. 



56 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

108 Mary, born Twinstead Hall, Nov. 27, 1653; m. Golding. 

109 Isaac, b. Twinstead Hall, Jan. 24, 1655; he inherited his fa- 

ther's property in 1675; he died there, unmarried, Mar. 14, 
1682, leaving his property to his sister Mary's sons. 

110 Penelope, b. Twinstead, Aug. 22, 1656; bur. St. Michael's 

Church, Cornhill, London, Jan. 20, 1659. 

111 Thomas ("Spring"), b. Twinstead, June 6, 1663. 

112 John, b. Twinstead, June 24, 1664; vicar of Bovedge near 

Woodbridge, Suffolk, in 1727. 

113 Catherine, b. Twinstead, Aug. 6, 1669. 

Most of the property of the Wyncoll family passed into the possession 
of William and Edward Golding, sons of 108 Mary, upon the death in 
1682 of 109 Isaac. Ill Thomas Wyncoll was ignored in his brother's will; 
he adopted the name "Spring" from that of his mother. He married 
Dorothy Umfreville of Langham Valley, Essex. His descendants through 
seven generations to those living in 1912 are given in The Wyncolls of 
Suffolk and Essex. They include Charles Edward Wyncoll, Colonel in His 
Majesty's Army, living in London in 1912, and William Wrench Wyncoll, of 
Colchester, as well as others living in Suffolk, England, South Australia, 
West Australia, etc. 



GENEALOGY OF THE WINCOLLS IN AMEEICA. 

BY A. N. WINCHELL. 

"John Wincoll of Salem." 
The record of John at Salem in 1631 seems to be a mistake. He is 
mentioned by Savage * with a reference to Felt, but Felt 2 names Thomas 
at Salem in 1631 and does not mention John. If there was a John at 
Salem in 1631 then Elizabeth, who came over in 1632, was probably his 
wife and John who came with her was probably his son. If there was 
no John at Salem then Elizabeth was probably the first wife of Thomas, 
and John, who came with her, was probably the only John Wincoll in 
the colony for some years. It is certain that John Wincoll of Watertown 
was granted land there on July 25, 1636 (when the John who came over 
with Elizabeth was only 17), and again on June 28, 1637. In 1658 a John 
Wincoll was deputy from Watertown to the Assembly. No descendants 
of any "John of Salem" are known. 

1 Thomas Wincoll of Watertown. 

1 Thomas Wincoll was in Salem in 1631; he sold land in Cambridge 
in 1637; he was granted land in Watertown in 1642; he died at Water- 
town June 10, 1657, "aged about 70." His wife Beatrice died at Water- 
town June 1, 1655, "aged about 80." He was a brother-in-law of Thomas 
Hewson a merchant of London who owned stock in the Massachusetts 
Bay Company, and who was a "brother" of Mr. Gurdon of Assington, 
Suffolk. Beatrice may have been his second wife and Elizabeth, who 
came to America in 1632, when 52 years old, may have been his first wife. 
He had a son (2) John. 

2 John Wincoll of Watertown and Kittery (1 Thomas). 

2 John Wincoll, son of Thomas of Watertown, administered the lat- 
ter 's estate. His wife Elizabeth was still living at Kittery in Maine, Sept. 
20, 1673, but died soon after, since he made a marriage settlement on 
Marie Etherington of Kittery on Feb. 29, 1675. His wife Marie died 
before June 5, 1679. John married, third, Olive, widow of Eoger Plaisted, 
before Sept. 16, 1682. She was then well along in years, being the mother 
of at least 3 and probably 7 children. John died Oct. 22, 1694; he was 
a "brother" of Thomas Broughton of Massachusetts. He had a son (3) 
John Wincoll, Jr. 

3 John Wincoll, Jr., of Kittery, Maine (2 John, 1 Thomas). 

3 John Wincoll, Jr., was the son of John and his second wife Marie; 

therefore he was born between 1675 and 1679. He married Deborah 

before 1699. He was called a "mariner" in Kittery in 1709 and was a

sloop appraiser at Portsmouth, N. H., on June 21, 1709. In 1708 he was 
Captain of a company from Portsmouth at Fort William and Mary at 
New Castle. In 1711 he was Captain of a company sent against Port 
Royal (in Canada) from New Hampshire. He died about 1714 and his 
widow Deborah administered his estate Nov: 12, 1715. He is supposed 
to have had the following family: 

4 John. 

5 Deborah, bapt. Portsmouth, N. H., 27 May, 1709, at North 

Church. 

6 Isaac, bapt. Portsmouth, N. H., 27 Oct., 1711, at North Church. 

7 Mary. 

4 John Wincoll of Boston (3 John, 2 John, 1 Thomas). 
4 John Wincoll (supposed to be son of John, Jr.) married Lucy Lee 
at Boston, April 22, 1725. They had a son named (8) John born June 23, 
1726, at Boston. The will of John Wincoll was administered in Suffolk 
County, Mass., in 1739. (According to Index to Probate Records of 
Suffolk County, Mass. it was case No. 7288.) He is supposed to have 
had a daughter (9) Mary. Widow Lucy Wincoll of Boston was left £13 6s 
in the will of Mary Ireland made 18 Oct., 1761. A widow "Winkd!" was 
granted public aid in Boston in April, 1769. 

5 Deborah Wincoll of Boston (3 John, 2 John, 1 Thomas). 
Deborah Wincoll (supposed to be daughter of John, Jr., and his 
wife Deborah) married Ebenezer Wright at Boston on Oct. 17, 1728. 

6 Isaac Wincoll of Kittery (3 John, 2 John, 1 Thomas). 
Isaac Wincoll (supposed to be son of John, Jr.), was a witness in 
Kittery in 1734. He married Mehitable Whitney, daughter of John and 
Lettice Whitney, in Kittery in 1737. He is supposed to have had a son 
(10) Joseph. 

7 Mary Wincoll of Boston (3 John, 2 John, 1 Thomas). 
Mary Wincoll (supposed to be daughter of John, Jr.) married Jonathan 
Read at Boston on Jan. 21, 1724. 

9 Mary Wincoll of Boston (4 John, 3 John, 2 John, 1 Thomas). 
Mary Wincoll (supposed to be daughter of John of Boston) married 
Thomas Allen at Boston on Aug. 15, 1754. 

10 Joseph Wincoll of Portsmouth (6 Isaac, 3 John, 2 John, 1 Thomas). 
Joseph Wincoll (supposed to be son of Isaac of Kittery) signed his 
name by a mark as evidence of loyalty to the Continental Congress in 
Portsmouth, N. H., in 1775. The next year he was a private in Captain 
James Arnold's company in Colonel Joshua Wingate's regiment which 
was raised to attack Ticonderoga. He was still in the Continental army 
in 1780 when he was 32 years old. In 1790 he was living in Portsmouth, 
N. H., and had three daughters, including Mary, who was baptized at 
North Church, 2 Jan., 1774. 

No other persons of the Wincoll name are known to have lived in 
America at any time. 



Plan of the Records and Explanation of Abbreviations. 

In the following pages an attempt is made to indicate the 
relationships of all persons born in America with the surname 
of Winchell, and also all whose mothers were born with that 
name. The members of the great Windsor Branch are first 
arranged in order, and after them the other Branches. In 
each Branch the names are arranged by generations and in 
each generation by families. In each family the children are 
given in order of seniority, and in all succeeding generations 
descendants of an older child precede descendants of a younger 
child. 

Each Branch begins with the earliest known ancestor, whose 
name and number are given in black-faced type at the left 
margin of the page; this is followed by the date and place of 
his birth, marriage, and death, and the name of the person whom 
he married ; next, his children are given in the order of their 
birth; finally, all other known facts of interest concerning him 
are stated. 

Immediately after the name of each head of family the first 
names (and numbers) of his Winchell ancestors are given in 
parentheses in regular order. 

In each family the names of children who become heads of 
families in the next generation are printed in black-faced type; 
the children of any one of these may be found by turning for- 
ward to the next generation and finding his number in black- 
faced type in its numerical order at the left margin of the page. 

Any one person has only one number (always printed before 
the name) in this book; the number is in ordinary type in 
that generation in which the person is one of the children of 
a family ; the same number in black- faced type at the left margin 
of the pages precedes the name of the same person where he 
stands as head of a family. 

So many additions have been made that it has been found 
impracticable to retain for each individual the number used in 
the first edition. 

The date and place of birth of each person are given when 
first mentioned ; if he is the head of a family in the next genera 
tion his full history is given there. 

The "old style" chronology, found in many old records, has 

59 



60 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

been changed, whenever possible, to conform to present usage. 

The letter b stands for ''born," m for "married," d for 
"died," bapt. for "baptized," w for "wife," dau. for "daugh- 
ter," s. for "son," ch. for "child" or "children." The prepo- 
sition " at " is commonly omitted in records of births, marriages, 
and deaths. 

Suppose a reader wishes information regarding Calvin 
Winchell. He should turn first to the index where under 
"Winchell, Calvin" page references are given to each mention 
of that name in the book. If the name happens to be a common 
one in the Winchell family there may be several or even many 
page numbers listed. It is necessary to turn to each successively 
until the correct one is found, unless the reader knows the name 
of some member of Calvin's family, or, better, the maiden name 
of his wife. By turning to that name (Rhoda Sawyer) a single 
page reference will direct the reader immediately to the family 
wanted. On that page, 1285 Calvin Winchell is printed in black- 
faced type at the left margin of the page and followed by sev- 
eral names and numbers in parentheses. The first name (and 
number) thus given is the first name of Calvin's father, the 
second name is his grandfather, etc. The first paragraph gives 
the date and place of Calvin's birth, marriage, and death, and 
the maiden name of his wife. Then follows a list of his children 
(with their serial numbers) in order of birth. Three of these 
children became heads of families and their names are printed 
in black-faced type (2559 Josiah B., 2560 Daniel, and 2562 
Sarah M.). Calvin's grandchildren may be found by turning 
forward to the place where these numbers occur in numerical 
order in the series of black-faced numbers at the left margin 
of the page. Similarly the account of the family of each of 
Calvin's male ancestors may be found by turning backward 
to the place where the number of the given ancestor (name and 
numbers given in the list in parentheses after Calvin's name) 
occurs in numerical order in the series of black-faced numbers. 

The number of the generations in this book refers to the 
heads of families. For example, the "Fifth Generation" em- 
braces the fifth generation of heads of families, beginning with 
Kobert as the founder of the Branch. Those children (of these 
heads of families of the fifth generation) who later had families 
appear as heads of families in the "Sixth Generation." 

For directions to find the relationship between two persons 
of the same Branch and generation, see page 501. 



WINDSOR BRANCH. 

FIRST GENERATION. 

1 ROBERT WINCHELL. Robert Winchell was probably 
born in England. His possible relationship to earlier Winchells 
and to Wineolls of England and America has been discussed 
in the Introduction. He was at Dorchester, Mass., at least as 
early as 1634, but removed to Windsor, Conn., about 1635. He 
died at Windsor, 21 Jan., 1668, and his wife died there, 10 July, 
1655. Be had the following family: 

2 Nathanael, born probably about 1633 either in England or Massa- 

chusetts, and brought to Windsor with his parents about 1635. 

3 Jonathan, born probably about 1634, probably in Massachusetts. 

4 Phebe, b. Windsor, Ct., bapt. 29 Mar., 1638; d. Windsor, 23 May, 

1662. 

5 Mary, b. Windsor; bapt. 5 Sept., 1641; d. Windsor, after 1668. 

6 David, b. Windsor; bapt, 22 Oct., 1643. 

7 Joseph, b. Windsor; bapt. 5 Apr., 1645; d. before 1668, as he was 

not named in his father's will. 

8 Martha, b. Windsor; bapt. 18 June, 1648; d. Windsor, 12 July, 1655. 

9 Benjamin, b. Windsor; bapt. 11 July, 1652; d. Windsor, where he 

was buried 24 June, 1656. 

In the History of the First Baptist Church in Boston from 
1665 to 1818, by Rev. James M. Winchell, Boston, 1819, is an 
extract from Dorchester Town Records, Jan. 4th, 1635 : " It is 
ordered that the p'tyes here underwritten shall have lotts at 
the bounds betwixt Roxbury and Dorchester, at the great hill 
betwixt the said bounds, and above the marsh as fol. not to 
inclose medowe." 

In the list of twenty persons receiving from 16 to 30 acres 
is the name of Robert Winchill (from publication of Dorchester 
Town Records, by N. E. Hist. Geneal. Soc, vol. XXI, pp. 41 
and 335). 

As Robert probably migrated to Windsor in 1635 he prob- 
ably made no permanent settlement on this land, and with his 
wife and two boys he may have lived at Dorchester. Opposed 

61 



62 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

to this is the consideration that had he lived there his oldest 
two children would have been born there, of which there is 
no known record. 

Eobert Wincall (Winchell?) was made a freeman at the 
General Court of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay, 6 May, 1635. 

It is surprising to find that Robert Winchell (with William 
Smarley) bought land 1 in Isle of Wight Co., Virginia, from 
Anthony Jones, March 25th, 1639. There is, however, no evi- 
dence that he went to Virginia, and it may be surmised that 
Smarley acted for both purchasers. No Winchells are known 
to have been in Virginia till about 200 years later. 

Robert Wynchell was on the Jury in Conn., 1 Aug., 1644, 
and 30 June, 1646. (Bee. Gen. Court, Conn.) 

From the Town Records of old Windsor, it appears that 
certain lands were assigned to Robert on the first division of 
the public domain among the original immigrants. The follow- 
ing is a copy of some of the original records entered by Matthew 
Grant, "Dec. 25th, 1640": 

"Robert Winch el hath granted from the plantation an 
home lot, with the additions to it, nine acres, more or less, the 
breadth twelve rod, the length from the meadow bounds 
to George Phillips his land, bounded by Joshua Carter, north, 
and Joseph Clarke, south." 

"Also, in the meadow adjoining, five acres and a half, more 
or less, in breadth nine rods, the length from the upland down 
to the Great River, [the Connecticut] bounded by Thomas 
Dibble, north, Joseph Clark, south." 

1 ' Toward Pine meadow fourteen acres and quarter, in breadth 
fourteen rods and quarter, the length from the great river back 
to the east one hundred and sixty rod." 

"Robert Winchel hath exchanged with Thomas Dibble the 
lying of his meadow, and now stands bounded north by Samuel 
Gay lord, south by Anthony Hawkins." 

"Thomas Dewey, legal attorney to Nicholas Canope and his 
wife Eady, formerly Eady Filley." 

"Robert Winchel hath purchased of Thomas Dewey the 
house and land on which it stands, which was formerly belong- 
ing to Eady Filley, being in quantity three quarters of an acre, 
more or less, as it lies bounded by the land of Samuel Gaylord, 
north, of William Hannum, south, Thomas Buckland, his 
meadow, east, and the highway, west. 

1 Va. Mag. Hist. Biog., vol. V., p. 407. 



FIRST GENERATION 63 

"Also, in the great meadow, 1 two acres, more or less, being 
in Length from the home lots down to the Great River. 

u Also hath purchase 1 the half of Thomas Buckland's mead- 
ow, five acres and a half, more or less, tn breadth ten rod, in 
length from the home lots to the great river. Bounded north 
by Peter Tilton, south by a highway." 

"Also by exchange with William Hannum, his home lot, 
three quarters of an acre, more or less, in breadth five rod and 
six foot, in length from the highway down to the meadow 
bounds, bounded by the land of said Robert which he pur- 
ehased of Eady Filley, north, and the land of Joshua Carter, 
dec'd, south. " 

The 'home lot" of Robert was located toward the north end 
of Windsor .Main Street, north of the Farmington River, on the 
south east corner of Main Street and the Bissell's Ferry Road 
which Leads to the ferry over the Connecticut River. (Stiles' 
Hist, of Ancient Windsor.) A neat wooden framed dwelling 
occupied the site of the ancient homestead, owned by Mr. Cush- 
ing in 1867. 

Under date of "Feb. 29th, 1659," Matthew Grant records 
another transact ion in real estate by which Robert acquired 3!/2 
acres. He made still another acquisition of 8 acres, 25 Oct., 
1660. On the 30 Nov., 1663, Robert entered into an agreement 
to maintain a fence between his land and that of Joseph Clarke. 

The whole amount of land acquired by Robert was at least 
48 or 50 acres. He seems to have borrowed money of one Abigail 
Alcott, of Hartford, to the amount of "forty-two pounds, three 
shillings and one penny." "For the payment of the said sum," 
Bays the record of the mortgage, "I am to have three years time, 
beginning on the second day of April, 1667, and end the second 
of April, 1670, which said three years I am to pay yearly rent 
after eight pounds pr. 100 in wheat and peas, at the price cur- 
rent ; and for her more certain security ' ' he mortgaged two par- 
cels of land. But he died in 1668. 

Jan. 18th, 1660, Robert was enumerated among the house- 
holders of Windsor, and was rated 6s for a seat in the church 
for himself and wife. 

Robert's will is dated 1668, and bequeathes his estate to his 
three sons, Nathanael, Jonathan and David, and his daughter 
Mary. The inventory showed an estate valued at nearly £62, 

*This was the flat lying between the river and the upland. The home 
lots were on the upland bordering the great meadow. 



64 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

or $310, no small sum for early colonial days. His will 1 was 
not written, but the following certificate, dated 20 Jan., 1668, 
was probated three days later. 

"We, the undersigned do witness that, being with Eobert 
Winchell that night in which he died, desired us to take notice 
that if he lived not till the next morning, and so could not have 
it written, that this was his will: That before anything was 
meddled with all his debts should be paid, and that his two sons 
Jonathan and David should have the lands on the northwest of 
the Highway, this being all the lands he had left, only Jona- 
than should have the north side and David the south side. Sister 
Randall says: 'What shall your daughter have?' He an- 
swered: 'I have done for her already. And as for my eldest 
son, he is in my debt; I acquit him that; yet let them have 
something. ' And said also : ' I desire that you two and Brother 
Phelps would be my overseers.' To this we set our hands. 

"Memo. He expressed that what was left of his estate be- 
sides his debts his two sons Jonathan and David should have.

SECOND GENERATION. 

2 NATHAN AEL WINCHELL (1 Robert). Born probably in 
Massachusetts or England about 1633, and brought to Windsor, 
Ct. with his parents. Married 8 Apr., 1664, Sarah Porter, dau. 
of Thos. Porter, of Farmington, Ct. She was born in 1646, 
bapt. 24 July, 1653, and died Windsor, 7 Oct., 1725. He died 
Windsor, 8 Mar., 1700. His will is given in Early Conn. Pro- 
bate Records, I, p. 599. 

10 Nathanael, b. Windsor, 7 Aug., 1665. 

11 Thomas, b. Windsor, 25 May, 1669. 

12 Sarah, b. Windsor, 26 Dec., 1674. 

13 Stephen, b. Windsor, 13 Aug., 1677; bapt. 26 Aug., 1677. 

14 John, b. Windsor, 1680. 

15 Mary, b. Windsor, 1683. 

In the old Windsor Land Records I find the following under 
date as early as "Dec. 15th, 1658": "Nathanael Winchel hath 
by purchase of John Hakes, two acres of meadow in the great 
meadow, in breadth three rod and half, more or less, bounded 
north by a highway, south by the meadow of Samuel Gaylord, 
east by the great river, west by the bounds of the home lots in 
the swamp." Nathanael had, however, been made freeman, 21 
May, 1657. 

"Feb. 16th, 1664. Nathanael Winchel hath land made over 
to him by his father, and to his heirs forever, viz. : — his dwelling 
house, orchard and lands pertaining to it on the east side of 
the street, one acre and half more or less, as it bounds north 
by the lands of Samuel Gaylord, south by the land of John 
Strong, west by the street, east by the swamp at the bounds of 
the meadow." 

"This may certify that the above specified parcel of land 
recorded to Nathanael Winchel, he stood possessed of in the 
year 1668, and since to this day, in his own right, without any 
person claiming and prosecuting the claim thereto, in due form 
of law, as they had heard of, as appears by the testimony of 
John Bissill, Sr., and that it may be confirmed to him according

to law, we have here signed to this record, seventh day of June 

1684. 

Benjamin Newberry, Commissr. 
{Land Records, Book Henry Wolcott, Register. 
I, p. 71) Thomas Bissill, Select Man. 

The following is an abstract of further transactions in real 
estate by Nathanael: — 

Feb. 18, 1664. Obtained of Henry Stiles 3% acres in Wind- 
sor, "for good consideration," (Bk. I. p. 178.) 

Feb. 27, 1670. Bought of Joseph Gillet one acre on east side 
of the river. Also adjoining this "one acre and half.'' . Latter, 
"made over again to John Styles." 

Apr. 25, 1673. Bought of Thomas Buckland 4 acres in Wind- 
sor. Also "of his brothers Jonathan and David, both jointly, 
all that land that was their father's, Robert Winch el, deceased, 
and was bequeathed to them and made over to them, as it lies on 
the westerly side of the common highway or street, as it lies 
bounded easterly against the common street, in breadth twenty- 
three rod and half, more or less, and is bounded north on the 
land of John Denslow and south by land of Thomas Dible, Senr., 
and for the length of it, from the common street until it comes 
over the wood swamp to the land of George Phillips Stoughton, 
and may be in quantity sixteen acres more or less. * * * 
"This made over. Witness, Matthew Grant." 

Under same date Nathanael pays off the mortgage made by 
his father to Abigail Alcott, and thus comes into possession of 
two parcels of land. Nathanael was now sole proprietor of the 
estate left by his father. 

Sep. 11, 1677. Nathanael obtained from Samuel Gaylord of 
Windsor, by exchange, two parcels of land, 5 acres, on the west 
side, and one parcel on the east side of the river. Certified to 
him by the town officers 7 June, 1684. 

Feb. 27, 1679. Nathanael sold John Osborn, Jr., one acre 
on the east side of the river. (Bk. I. p. 31.) 

Feb. 22, 1681. Nathanael bought of John Gaylord for 39 
pounds, 10 -acres on east side — ten rods on the river and 3 miles 
10 rods east. 

He signed, May 13, 1680, along with 89 others, a petition ad- 
dressed to "The Honored, the Genl. Assembly of ye Colony of 
Connecticut," asking the establishment of an organized town 






SECOND GENERATION 67 

on the east side of the Connecticut River and the institution of 
the Second Church of Windsor. 

His wife Sarah, like most of the women of her time, was 
unable to sign her name. She was admitted to the Windsor 
Church, Aug. 1671. Savage says her father was of Hartford, 
but he may have moved thither after Sarah's marriage. 

A Sarah Winchel, of Windsor, married Joseph Judd, of 
Farmington, 3 June, 1713 {Farmington Town Records). As 
Nathanael 's wife was only 53 at the time of his death, and her 
own relatives belonged in Farmington, this was probably Na- 
thanael's widow. 

3 JONATHAN WINCHELL (1 Robert). Born probably in 
Massachusetts before 1635. Married 16 May, 1666, at Farming- 
ton, Ct., Abigail Bruson, dau. of Richard Bruson (sometimes 
Brownson). She was born about 1644 and was baptized 29 
May, 1659; she d. Suffield, 27 March, 1710. He m. 2d widow 
Mary Townsley, Suffield, March, 1713, who d. 10 Feb.," 1729. 
He d. 5 March, 1715. 

16 Jonathan, b. Windsor, Feb., 1667. 

17 Jonathan, b. Windsor, 14 Feb., 1669. 

18 Benjamin, b. Windsor, 28 June, 1674. 

19 Abigail, b. Suffield, Conn., 18 June, 1679. 

There may have been a younger daughter Phebe, since 
Phebe Winchell of Suffield m. Thomas Kent, 27 Oct., 1708. 

The first wife's name is Bruson in the Windsor records, and 
Brownson in Savage's Geneal. of New England. The latter also 
states that she was perhaps the daughter of Richard Brownson of 
Farmington. There is some doubt whether there were two Jona- 
thans among the ch. The first is given in Genealogical Register, 
vol. v., p. 363. 

Jonathan was on the freemen's list in 1659. He was on the 
list to work the roads on the east side of the river in June, 
1672 (Stiles' Anc. Wind. 223). The same year he signed a 
petition for the organization of a new society on that side of the 
river. In 1673 he made over jointly with his brother David to 
their brother Nathanael all the property on the west side of the 
highway, which had been bequeathed to them by their father, 
" sixteen acres more or less." (See under Nathanael.) About 
this time he probably removed to Suffield. 

Jonathan Winchell was the sixth original grantee of Suffield, 
Conn., 16 May, 1671, receiving 60 acres. 



68 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

6 DAVID WINCHELL (1 Robert). Born at Windsor; bapt. 
22 Oct., 1643; m. first Elizabeth Filley, dau. of William and 
Margaret Filley of Windsor, 17 Nov., 1669. She was born 
4 Mar., 1650. He died 29 Dec., 1723 (probably at Suffield, Ot). 

20 Joseph, b. Windsor, 13 Sept., 1670; bapt. 18 Sept., 1670. 

David married, second, 1 May, 1672, Mary Griffin of Windsor. 

21 Christian, b. Windsor, 9 Mar., 1673. 

22 Elizabeth, b. Windsor, 7 Dec., 1675. 

23 Martha, b. Suffield. 

24 David, b. Suffield, 19 March, 1682. 

25 Mary, b. Suffield, 8 Feb., 1685. 

26 Jedediah, b. Suffield, 13 March, 1688; d. Suffield, 1690. 

27 Jedediah, b. Suffield, 29 Dec, 1690; m. Thankful Smith, of Suf- 

field, 1710; she was b. 13 May, 1692; he d. Suffield. 

28 Samuel, b. Suffield, 9 June, 1693. 

Mary Griffin was daughter of John of Windsor, and was b. 
1646, and d. 23 June, 1728. John was one of the first settlers 
of Simsbury, where he had a grant of land as a reward for the 
introduction of the manufacture of pitch and tar. He was 
representative for some years and died in 1681, leaving ten 
children. 

Under date of 25 Apr., 1673, David sold to his brother 
Nathanael all of his paternal estate lying on the west side of 
the highway at Windsor. In the record of voluntary contribu- 
tions for the relief of families distressed by "King Philip's 
War," David Winchel stands credited for 2s 6d. — date 1676. 
From this time David disappears from the Windsor records and 
his subsequent history is found in the records of Suffield. I 
have not been able, however, to obtain abstracts from the Land 
Records there. 

Mr. H. S. Sheldon writes from West Suffield, May 20, 1882, 
that David and Jonathan were "among the first settlers of this 
town, and were its most prominent and useful citizens." 

David Winchell was the seventh grantee of Suffield, Conn., 
May 16, 1671, receiving 60 acres. He was sent on an expedi- 
tion to Springfield, Mass., July 26, 1666 ; he was made a freeman 
in 1671 ; and was selectman and surveyor for 25 years, surveying 
9000 acres.

J tmr 15, 1708. Nathanael Winchel, of Windsor, weaver, 
conveyed to John Winchel and Josiah Phelps (brother and 
brother-in-law) for "divers good causes and considerations" a 
tract on the east side of the river, 11 rods broad and 3 miles 
long, being 66 acres. 

Oct. 21, 1709. Nathanael Winchel of Windsor, weaver, pur- 
chased of Capt. Thos. Stoughton of Windsor, for 19 pounds, a 
piece of land on the east side of the river in the town of Wind- 
sor, partly upland and partly meadow land — "it being the 
same land that I, said Stoughton, lately bought of the said 
Winchel, and is 9 rods in breadth and 3 miles in length," (54 
acres) "bounded north by lands of said Nathanael Winchel or 
Josiah Phelps and John Winchel." 

Oct. 22, 1700. John Winchel conveyed to his "loving brother 
Nathanael Winchel of Farmington," all that land on the east

70 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

At the same date Nathanael Winchel of Farmington, weaver, 
and Mary his wife, for 90 pounds, conveyed to John Gaylord 
Jr. a tract on the east side of the river 20 rods broad and 3 
miles long (120 acres). Signed by Sarah Winchel (mother, 
who made her mark), Nathanael Winchel and Mary his wife 
(who also made her mark). 

Dec. 8, 1713. Nathanael Winchel, at the annual meeting of 
the Great Swamp Parish (now Kensington) at the southeastern 
boundary of Farmington, was chosen to take care and get fire- 
wood for Mr. Burnham, the minister. 8 Dec, 1714, he was 
chosen one of the moderators. 6 Dec, 1716, voted by the society, 
"to give Nath'l Winchel ten shillings for his son's beating the 
drum on the Sabbath for the year past, to be paid in Mr. Burn- 
ham's rate this year." 7 Jan., 1716-17, the society by vote, 
seated the inhabitants in the "meeting house" and Nathanael 
Winchel Sen. was one of six to occupy the "first seat in the 
square body." 

(Note in reference to ll Farmington, ' ' " Berlin/ ' " Kensington, ' ' etc.) 

The old town of Farming, till 1785, embraced localities which in this 
book are designated "Farmington," "Berlin/' "Kensington," "Worth- 
ington," and "New Britain." In 1785, a new town, Berlin, was set off 
(principally) from Farmington, which included Kensington, Worthington 
and New Britain. In 1850 New Britain was set off from Berlin and 
made a town by itself. The society called Kensington has therefore always 
been known as such since 1722. It was in the town of Farmington till 
1785, and has been in the town of Berlin ever since. The same is true 
of Worthington, or East Berlin.

It is probable that Abigail Ruggles was dau. of Rev. Ben- 
jamin Ruggles who was born in 1676, grad. at Cambridge in 

1693, d. in 1708. His wife was Mercy . He had seven 

children. He was son of John Ruggles, b. 1632 in England,

Hezekiah was a farmer at Windsor and removed to Kensing- 
ton. He built there the mill known for many years, as " Win- 
ch ell's mill," and more recently as "Moore's mill," but at 
present known as the "Chisel Shop" of the Hart Manufactur- 
ing Co. April 27, 1752, a petition for division of the Parish of 
Kensington, in the town of Farmington (not granted), was 
signed by Solomon Winchell, Hezekiah Winchell and Hezekiah 
Winchell, Jr. July 14, 1756, Hezekiah Winchell, and Mary, his 
wife, were members of the church in Kensington; as also 6 
Feb., 1757. In his will he left a farm to each of his three surviv- 
ing sons. 

34 SAMUEL WINCHELL (11 Thomas, 2 Nathanael, 1 Rob- 
ert). Born (Windsor?) 5 Jan., 1690. 

131 Job. 

132 James. 

The father of Job and James — whether 34 Samuel or not — 
is said by Thomas J. Winchell, the humorist, to have been a 
Baptist preacher at Stamford, Ct. He is also said to have de- 
scended from one of il three brothers" who emigrated from 
Wales in the earlier part of the seventeenth century and set- 
tled in Providence Plantation and the colony of Massachusetts 
Bay. But we have not been able to discover any warrant for 
the statement that any immigrants of the name Winchell set- 
tled in Rhode Island. 

From Mrs. Lovina Wadleigh, of Lawrence, Mass., we have 
information that the father of Job and James settled in Conn, 
at or near Hartford, where he taught school many years. She 
states that he came from England with his brother; that the 
latter was conscripted by English officers and placed on board 
a man-of-war to serve under the King; that he deserted and 
settled in Sandford, Me., calling himself Willard, and that after 
the return of peace Congress legalized the change of name. She 
also states that Job and James had sisters. We have not been 
able to obtain any further statements from representatives of 
this division of the family in reference to their remote ancestry; 
and the records render it probable that Job and James are 



FOURTH GENERATION 81 

descended from Robert, while it is also not improbable that 34 
Samuel was their father. 

36 SARAH WINCHELL (11 Thomas, 2 Nathanael, 1 Robert).

48 STEPHEN WINCHELL (13 Stephen, 2 Nathanael, 1 Rob- 
ert). Born AVindsor, 20 Nov., 1698; m. Mary Rouse, of Nine 
Partners, Duchess Co., N. Y., about 1744 ; d. in Duchess County. 
Alary was b. 1705. After he died she m. Smith and at- 
tained the age of nearly 100 years.

L37 Rebecca, b. Nine Partners, Duchess Co., N. Y. 

Stephen Winchell of Windsor was at Fort Dummer, Brattle- 
boro, Ct., June 1 to Aug. 31, 1724. 

At the town meeting in Simsbury, held 2 Jan., 1733, Lot 
No. 11, 36 acres, "on the west side of the mountain, near the 
copper hill," was assigned to Stephen Winchell, Jr. 

Stephen, on the 14th of March, 1734, received land from the 
town of Torrington, as I learn from an old MS. called, "Here 
l'ollowcth the Laying out of the first Lotts in Torrington, Anno 
Dom. 1734," which contains the following: "No. 23, a lot laid 
out to Stephen Winchell containing 4 acres and 90 rods. " (Here 
follow boundaries.) 

On the same date Stephen and his brothers Thomas, Caleb, 
Robert and Martin, divided among themselves the 100-acre lot 
bequeathed to them by their late father Stephen, situated at 
Turkey Hills, in Simsbury. 

Dec. 12, 1737, Stephen and his brother Martin sold their 
brother Thomas, for 12 pounds, ten acres of land at a place 
known as Pope's Farm, near Salisbury Plain, "which land our 
honored father Stephen Winchell bought of Enoch Phelps, our 
rights therein being two-fifths parts thereof." 

Dec. 13, 1737, Stephen for money and land sold his brother 
Thomas, of Simsbury, land at Turkey Hills, being one-fifth part 
of two tracts "which were granted and surveyed unto our 
honored father Stephen." 31 May, 1743, "Stephen Winchel, 



82 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

late of Windsor, now of Simsbury, ' ' united with his brothers in 
making over to John Thrall, for 9 pounds, "a piece of land in 
Windsor in that division commonly called the mile and half 
mile division, bounded north on Suffield," etc. 

There is no further record of Stephen in Connecticut ; but in 
a division of public lands at Windsor 1 May, 1743, Lot 149, con- 
taining 16% acres, was allotted to Stephen Wincheirs heirs 
(perhaps 13 Stephen). 

About this time 48 Stephen seems to have launched into the 
western wilderness, since we next learn of him on the estate 
of ' ' The Great Nine Partners, ' ' in Duchess County, N. Y., where 
he married, about 1744. This tract or patent, granted about 
1714, was a belt ten miles wide, stretching across the county 
from the Hudson Kiver to "The Oblong" (1% miles from the 
Connecticut state line), and comprising parts of the present 
towns of Rhinebeck, Hyde Park, Clinton, Pleasant Valley, Wash- 
ington and Amenia, and the whole of Stanford. In North East 
the north line of the tract was the north line of the "old James 
Collins farm." "The Little Nine Partners' " patent covered 
the present towns of Pine Plains and Milan, and part of North 
East in Duchess County. 

One of the Great Nine Partners, named Rouse, had a daugh- 
ter Mary whom 48 Stephen married. He lived and died in 
Duchess Co., though all his family removed to Ulster, on the 
opposite side of the Hudson. It is not known upon what part 
of the Great Nine Partners' patent Stephen resided, but Lewis 
Hollister of Olive Bridge, N. Y., stated that it was near the 
Connecticut line. As his younger brother, Robert, is known to 
have settled in the "North Precinct in Duchess Co., N. Y.," 
it is probable that Stephen lived either in North East or the 
contiguous parts of the town of Stanford. 

49 THOMAS WINCHELL (13 Stephen, 2 Nathanael, 1 Rob- 
ert). Born Windsor, 2 April, 1700; m. Mary Owen, who was 
b. 13 Apr., 1707. He lived at Turkey Hills, Conn. 

138 Thomas, b. Turkey Hills (now E. Granby; then a Parish of 

Windsor). 

139 Elisha. 

140 Jehiel, b. Turkey Hills; bapt. 3 Apr. 1737. 

141 Abigail, b. Turkey Hills, Feb., 1743 ; d. Turkey Hills, 11 June, 1747. 

From the burying ground at Turkey Hills: — "Abigail, daughter 
of Thomas Winchel, died June 11th, 1747, aged 4 yrs. and 9 mos." 



FOURTH GENERATION 83 

Mary Owen, 49 Thomas' wife, is supposed to have been great- 
granddaughter of John who came from Wales and settled in 
Windsor. John was b. 25 Dec., 1624, and settled at a place 
called then and now Polly's orchard, on the opposite side of the 
stream from Poquonnock in Windsor. 

49 Thomas, on the 2d of Jan., 1733, by vote of town meeting, 
received 40 acres within the bounds of Simsbury, in addition to 
what he and his brothers received as heirs of Stephen their 
father. At another division of land authorized at the same time, 
he received 30 acres, being the 13th Lot, "on the west side of 
the mountain near the copper hill." 

Mar. 14, IT.'U, he and his brothers divided among themselves 
the 100-acre lot bequeathed by their father, lying in the north 
part of Simsbury, near Turkey Hills. 

Feb. 23, 1736, he purchased of his brother Martin, for 155 
pounds, several tracts of land at Turkey Hills. 

Feb. 27. 1737, he (with two others) purchased of Obadiah 
Owen, 47 acres of land in Windsor. 

Aug. 5, 1738, Ebenezer Smith of Suffield, and Thos. Winchel 
of Simsbury, bought a joint estate of 53 acres, at Salisbury 
Plain, in Windsor, which ''formerly belonged to our honored 
father Obadiah Owen, of said Windsor," bounded south partly 
on land belonging to the heirs of Stephen Winchell. This they 
divided between them. 

Aug. 26, 1738, he and Ebenezer Smith had another transac- 
tion, in which Thomas sold Smith for 18 pounds, a half interest 
in 48 acres at Salisbury Plain. 

March 14, 1739, Thomas exchanged land in Simsbury for 
one-third interest in 47 acres in Windsor. 

In the division of Windsor town commons made 25 Oct., 
1743, lot 321, containing 20 acres, was assigned to Thomas 
Winchell — "in width 20 rods to a stake standing six foot from 
an oak tree marked. Butts south on Isaac Brown's land, west 
on highway, north on Samuel Drake's land, east on sequestered 
land." 

Mar. 27, 1747, Lieutenant Thomas Winchell of Simsbury, 
bought of Gideon Moore, for 800 pounds, 102 acres at Turkey 
Hills. 

Jan. 25, 1749, "Thomas Winchell of Simsbury, for love 
and good will to his son Thomas Winchell, Jr., of Simsbury," 
and as part of his portion, to the value of 800 pounds, con- 
firmed to him 50 acres of land at Turkey Hills — being the east 



84 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

end of the lot bought of Gideon Moore, with dwelling house 
thereon. 

Feb. 18, 1755, Thomas, on the same terms, deeded 800 pounds 
worth of land (48 acres) at Turkey Hills, to his son Elisha. 

Apr. 10, 1759, Thomas also confirmed to his son Jehiel, two 
lots of land in Turkey Hills, adjoining a lot previously owned 
by Jehiel — also 6 acres adjoining Elisha 's land — 3 rods square. 

Feb. 13, 1760, Thomas Winchel and Joshua Holcomb divided 
land at Turkey Hills. 

Dec. 10, 1766, Lieut. Thomas Winchell brought six suits 
against Thomas Winchel, Jr., (evidently his own son) and 
levied on land worth in the aggregate about 25 pounds. 

Nov. 6, 1767, Lieut. Thomas, of Simsbury, bought 12 acres at 
Turkey Hills, "between the highway and the mountain" — 
bounding on land of Martin Winchel, Jr. The same day he 
made an exchange of land with Joel Clark. 

Apr. 1, 1768, Lieut. Thomas, for 41 pounds, sold Martin 
Winchel, Jr., 9 acres at Turkey Hills. 

Apr. 17, 1770, Lieut. Thomas, for 28 pounds, bought of Dea. 
Samuel Owen 2 acres and a mansion house at Turkey Hills. 

From this date his name disappears from the records. For 
other transactions, see under his brothers Stephen, Caleb, Robert 
and Martin. 

52 ROBERT WINCHELL (13 Stephen, 2 Nathanael, 1 Robert). 
Born Windsor, 28 May, 1705 ; m. Lydia Hollebirt of Woodbury, 
Ct., 6 Sept., 1733. Lived at Turkey Hills, Ct., and at or near 
North East, Duchess Co., N. Y. Lydia was probably dau. of 
Ebenezer Hollebird. (The name is spelled variously and is 
the same as Hurlbut.) Abstract of her will is in N. Y. Hist. 
Soc. Coll, 1899.

Nov. 14, 1733, Robert purchased of John Lewis of Suffield, 
for 16 pounds, a dwelling house and an acre of land at Turkey 
Hills, formerly belonging to Ebenezer Hollebird of Simsbury. 



FOURTH GENERATION 85 

Mar. 14, 1734, Robert and his four brothers divided among 
themselves the "100 acre lot" bequeathed to them jointly by 
their father Stephen. 

Nov. 1, 1737, Robert sold his brother Martin fie house and 
lot bought in 1733. On the 4th of March, 1739, he repur- 
chased this property of Martin, as also another piece of land 
and an orchard — 10 acres — adjoining the house-lot, paying for 
the whole 100 pounds. On the same date he resold to Samuel 
Owen, for 31 pounds, the house and lot. 

June 29, 1740, Robert bought of Azariah Case of Newark, 
N. J., for 150 pounds, 50 acres at Turkey Hills. Sold, 31 May, 
1743, to his brother Caleb, for 300 pounds. 

Sept. 1, 1740, Robert and William Moore agreed upon a 
boundary line between them. 

May 31, 1743, Robert sold Benjamin Griswold, for 300 
pounds, 43 acres at Turkey Hills, bounded north on Thomas 
WinchelL [Spelt for the first time with two l's. From Sims- 
bury Record.] 

June 4, 1743, Robert sold his brother Thomas, for 28 pounds, 
two tracts at Turkey Hills, " which were granted and surveyed 
unto my honored father Stephen Winchell, of Simsbury, dee'd." 

In a division of "Windsor Town Commons," made 25 Oct., 
1743, Lot 86 was assigned to Robert Winchell, "containing 
two acres and half, in width three rods to a stake marked R. W. 
Butts south on land of Maj. Henry Allyn, " &c. 

In the Xlth volume of Windsor records, p. 104, I find the 
following : ' ' Robert Winchell, of the North Precinct in Duchess 
Co., N. Y., for 30 pounds, old tenor bills, paid by my brother 
Thomas Winchell, of Simsbury, Conn.," conveys to him two 
acres at Turkey Hills, in Windsor, — "it being in partnership 
with my brothem," and "is the fifth part of a Ten lott, " &c. 
4 Nov., "in the 28 year of his majesty's Reign George ye Second 
of Great Britain, &c, king, Anno D. 1754." Acknowledged 
in Salisbury, Ct., 4 Nov., 1754. 

The "North Precinct" embraced what is now known as the 
town of North East. From the records it would appear that 
Robert removed to Duchess County at some time between 25 
Oct., 1743, and 4 Nov., 1754. He probably removed with his 
brother, about 1744; since we have already seen that Stephen 
disappears from the Conn, records 31 May, 1743, almost simul- 
taneously with his brother Robert, and reappears in Duchess 
County about 1744. From 375 Ira Winchell, I get information 



86 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

which identifies this Eobert with his grandfather. Ira says 
he lived in Mass. [probably Conn.], near Winchell's Pond. 
"I've heard my father tell about the Nine Partners. I should 
think my grandfather lived in Duchess County at Nine Part- 
ners, ' ' &c. 

53 MARTIN WINCHELL (13 Stephen, 2 Nathanael, 1

151 Lucy, b. Turkey Hills. 

152 Deborah, b. Turkey Hills; m. Simeon Lewis, a lawyer of distinction 

at Windsor. 

153 Timothy, b. about 1745. I have no information of this Timothy 

except from 1118 Col. John Winchell of North East, N. Y., who 
says: "I well remember that Timothy, the brother of my grand- 
father, (150 James) visited my father and his brothers the winter 
that I taught school on the Winchell Mountain, which was in 
1814-15. He was at my father's some time, and his head was 
white — age propably 70 or over." 

154 Abigail, b. Turkey Hills, 1748; m. Alexander Phelps son of Joseph 

b. 1688; son of Joseph b. 1667; son of Joseph, who came from 
Eng. to Windsor with his brother Samuel (Phelps' Hist. Sims-

155 Dolly, b. Turkey Hills. 

156 Nathanael, b. Turkey Hills about 1751. 

157 Dan, b. Turkey Hills, 1753. 

Ensign Martin's first* appearance in the records of Windsor 
and Simsbury is under date of 30 March, 1729, when he bought, 
for 40 pounds, 50 acres in the north part of Simsbury — ''marsh 
and upland" — "lyeth between Manatuck and the Turkey Hill 
mountain*'; — also, for 95 pounds, 75 acres, with dwelling house, 
"lying and being situate near the copper hill, within the town- 
ship of Simsbury." 

March 14, 1734, he and his brothers Stephen, Thomas, Caleb 
and Robert, made a division of the 100 acre lot "which was our 
honored father's, late of Simsbury, dec'd." 

Feb. 23, 1736, Martin bought of Josiah Higley, for 260 
pounds, two tracts, containing 70 acres, at Turkey Hills — one on 
the west side of the highway, bounded south by land of Thomas 
Winchell — another on the east side of the highway opposite the 
first, bounded south partly on land of Thomas Winchell and 



FOURTH GENERATION 87 

partly on Caleb, easterly by land of Caleb, and northerly by 
the highway bordering the burying ground. At the same time 
he sold, for 155 pounds, to Thomas, several tracts at Turkey 
Hills. 

Under date of Nov. 1, 1737, I find a record of which the 
following is an abstract: "Robert Winchell of Windsor, for 
100 pounds paid by Martin Winchell of Simsbury," conveys 
to him "a certain dwelling house and about one acre of land 
lying in Windsor aforesaid, at a place called Turkey Hills, 
which was formerly Ebenezer Hulburt's, formerly of Sims- 
bury, aforesaid, now of said Windsor, as the same is bounded 
west on the place formerly soposed Simsbury, east bounds, 
fifteen rod in length, and ten rods wide by compute, be it more 
or less; as also another piece of land and an orchard, in esti- 
mation ten acres, be it more or less, as it bounds north on land 
of Stephen Winchell, sonth on land called Mr. Thompson's, 
west on Simsbury east line, east partly on land of Samuel 
Owins, and partly on the forementioned piece lying in Wind- 
sor at a place called Turkey Hills, aforesaid, with the privileges 
and appurtenances thereunto belonging, as fence, orchard, tim- 
ber, trees, etc." 

Dec. 12th, 1737, Martin united with his brother Stephen in 
selling to Thomas their interest in 10 acres at a place known as 
Pope's Farm, near Salisbury Plain [between Poquonnock and 
Turkey Hills], 

March 4, 1739, he resold to Robert the real estate purchased 
of him in 1737. 

May 31, 1743, he united with Stephen, Thomas, Caleb and 
Robert, in selling a piece of land in Windsor, bordering on 
Suffield. He still resided in Simsbury. 

Sept., 1756, he owned land in Simsbury adjoining lands 
owned by his brothers Caleb and Thomas. 

March 1, 1759, he bought of Benjamin Griswold, for 20 
shillings, 30 acres and 60 rods of land laid out to Stephen 
Winchell, Jr. (his brother), "bounded west on the ledge of 
the mountain." 

Jan. 21, 1767, he is recorded as a member of the "Conform- 
ist" church in Simsbury. 

Apr. 18, 1768, he bought for 10 pounds, 22 acres in the 
town of Windsor. 

Apr. 27, 1772, he bought of Zaccheus Gillet, for 63 pounds, 



88 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

9 acres in Windsor adjoining, on the west, land previously- 
owned by him. 

Nov. 3, 1772, he bought of Isaac Pinney, for 56 pounds 5 
shillings, 45 acres of land in the township of Windsor, "on 
the Plains a little westerly of Rainbow brook," etc. 

March 12, 1776, he bought of Zaccheus Gillet, for 55 pounds, 
15 acres lying in Simsbury and Windsor, in Turkey Hills 
Parish, on the east side of the mountain, bounding west on a 
drain on the east side of the lake swamp, so-called/ ' . . . "east 
on said Martin WinchelTs land." 

March 22, 1782, he purchased of Micah Moore, for 57 pounds, 
9 acres in Windsor. 

This seems to have been his last transaction in real estate. 
In the burying ground at East Granby (Turkey Hills), is the 
last resting place of the remains of Ensign Martin and his 
wife. The two stones are of Portland brown sandstone well 
finished for the times, still erect and in a good state of preserva- 
tion. [1867.] The following are the two epitaphs: "In mem- 
ory of Ensign Martin Winchell who died February the 14th A. 
D. 1785 in the 77th year of his age. 

"Children see whare your parents lie, 
"Remember you were born to die." 

"Mrs. Lucy, relict of Ensign Martin Winchell died May 
29th 1785 in the 71st year of her age. 

"Children see whare 
your parence lie 

"Remember you are born to die." 

The inscriptions face the graves, as was customary in those 
days. The footstone of the first bears this inscription: "En- 
sign Martin Winchell' '—that of the other, simply, "L W" 

The various stones from which I copied epitaphs are all 
clustered on a little knoll close by the highway which runs 
east and west at this place. The stones all face south and 
can be distinctly seen from the highway. 

56 SAMUEL WINCHELL (14 John, 2 Nathanael, 1 Robert.) 
Col. Samuel Winchell was b. at Windsor, Ct., 15 March, 1711 ; 
m. Sarah McNeiss of Harpswell, Me., about 1738 ; d. Topsham,

Me., 4 Feb., 1783. Lived at Topsham, where his w. died 18 
Mar.. 1785. She was b. 1718. 

158 John, b. Harpswell, Me., May 2, 1740. 

159 Martha, b. Topsham, May 14, 1742. 

160 Salome, b. Topsham, July 8, 1754. 

" These boys were both drowned; 

161 Samuel, b. Topsham, Oct. 25, 1746. J though, as the body of one was 

162 James, b. Topsham. 1 never f 0U nd, suspicion existed 

^that he was taken by the Indians. 

163 Ebenezer, b. Topsham, May 5, 1749. 

164 Sarah, b. Topsham, 1750. 

165 Mary, b. Topsham. 

166 Silence, b. Topsham; m. James Purinton, Topsham, Me., 23 Nov., 

1786; no ch. Purinton was one of "Committee of Correspon- 
dence, " etc., in 1778; went with his father to Georgetown (now 
Bath); when of age settled at "ye basin" at Phippsburg; 
afterward removed to Topsham. 

167 Anne, b. Topsham; not m. ; living in 1788. 

168 Hannah, b. Topsham 1759; d. Topsham, 29 July, 1823; not m. 

56 Samuel seems to have penetrated into the forests of 
Maine as early certainly as 1738. His brother Ebenezer at 
first accompanied him, but subsequently returned and settled 
in Torrington. Another brother, John, was also with him in 
Maine in 1743. Samuel resided at Harpswell for some time 
after his marriage. In 1750 he settled at what was then and is 
now known as Cathance Mills, about 5 miles above the village 
of Bowdoinham, on the Cathance River, a tributary of the 
Kennebec. The mills were erected by Samuel. He acquired, 
with Jacob Eaton, a joint title to this property by virtue of a 
deed from Isaac Royall, dated 15 Nov., 1750. This conveyed 
500 acres and all of Royall's rights in said stream. Samuel 
seems to have become one-fourth proprietor of the Cathance 
mill right, embracing 1100 acres. 

Dec. 28, 1757, Samuel sold to Adam Hunter all his rights to 
125 acres in common, and one-eighth of a double saw-mill and 
stream. 

Nov. 21, 1759, Belcher Noyes, "foeffer in trust for ye 
creditors of estate of Adam Winthrop, Esq., late of Boston," 
seems to have sold Samuel Winchell one-eighth interest in cer- 
tain undivided land in Topsham, which, Jan. 1, 1760, Samuel 
sold to John Patten. 

June 15, 1761, in the division of the 1100 acres, a small 
lot, No. 4, was assigned to Samuel as his house lot. 



90 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

Feb. 13, 1765, Col. Winchell sold to James and Robert Ful- 
ton "one six-teenth of ye double saw and stream on ye lower 
falls at Cathance." 

Feb. 13, 1777, Samuel Winchell of Topsham, Mass. (now 
Maine), deeded land to Ebenezer Winchell of Torrington, Ct. 

Samuel Winchell is said to have been styled Colonel "from 
ye circumstance of being a superior officer and worthy mem- 
ber of a fraternity" whose name is not stated. 

Samuel Winchell owned a slave called Quash Winchell, in 
whose will, dated 3 Mar., 1788, the latter named his "friends, 
Anne and Hannah Winchell."

174 Silence, b. Torrington about 1760. 

175 Bethia, b. Torrington. 

176 John, b. Torrington. 

Apr. 24, 1733, Ebenezer Winchell of Windsor, in common 
with his two brothers, John and Samuel, received from his fa- 
ther John, a deed to certain land in Torrington. 

Nov. 12, 1755, John (probably Jr.) of Windsor, and Ebe- 
nezer of Westfield, Mass., deeded certain land in Torrington to 
one Gaylord. 

Dec. 10, 1753, land was deeded to Ebenezer of Torrington. 

Feb. 3, 1777, Ebenezer purchased his brother Samuel's 
Torrington estate. 

Ebenezer was among the first settlers of Torrington; he 
was there as early as 1757, and on the school committee in 
1761, 1771, and 1774.

We have no direct proof that 177 Jonathan was a son of 
67 Daniel. The traditions and circumstances, however, point to 
tli is connection.

192 Hezekiah, probably b. Egremont, Mass., about 1730. 

According to the History of Berkshire County, Mass., Sam- 
uel Winchell (probably = 71), from Amenia, N. Y., settled 
near North Egremont with his brother Ezeriah (probably = 73) 
in 1726. In 1733 Samuel removed to Twelve Mile Pond in 
Monterey, where he kept a hotel three years and then returned 
to Egremont. In 1743 he owned 15 acres of land there. He 
was related to the Van Guilder and Karner families. (See 
195 Joseph.) He was elected clerk and assessor at the first 
town meeting in March, 1761. He joined the Congregational 
church about 1775. He with David Winchell (=491?) and 
others obtained land in Egremont and Alford, Mass., from 
Indians in 1756. He and Hezekiah (assumed to be his son) 
and Joseph (= 195?) were taxpayers in 1761.

of Lexington, in Apr., 1775. He was later lieutenant and 
adjutant of the regiment and kept the records ; his signature is 
in them in many places. He removed from Kensington, Ct., to 
the town of Harpersfield, about 1777, and soon after to West- 
field, Mass., where he lived till 1788, when he removed to 
Choconut, N. Y., on the Susquehanna. In 1798 he accom- 
panied his son Amasa to Scipio, Cayuga Co., N. Y., where he 
remained till his death, which, according to Mrs. Elizabeth 
Markham, of Suisun City, Cal., was caused by the fall of a 
tree.

Job was a man of education, and is known to have been 
engaged in the business of teaching at or near Hartford, Ct., 
and afterwards at Berwick, Me. He also served his country in 
the struggles of the Revolution, acting, according to one state- 
ment, in the capacity of Quartermaster or Paymaster in the 
"Continentals." He was taken prisoner and confined in the 
famous prison ship Jersey, where he suffered the fate of so 
many of his comrades. In the graphic language of 545 Thos. 
J. Winchell, of this Sub-branch, "His bones bleached in the 
Wallabout." 

Note. — It is probable that two Job Winehells are confused in this 
family. One lived in Maine and the other in Conn, and Vermont. As the 
ancestry of both is uncertain it seems useless to try to separate them.

100 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

James removed to New York before the Revolution, and 
opened a book store in Peck Slip. He owned the property on 
the southeast corner of Gold and Ferry Streets. ''The corpora- 
tion cheated his son and daughter out of this property.' ' He 
was considered a very able writer. He wrote a political 
pamphlet advocating the cause of the patriots, for which he 
was imprisoned in "the old sugar house/' (Mostly from the 
lips of Thomas J. Winchell.) Another informant states that 
he "was a man of piety, learning and musical talent, and took 
an active part in the then impending crisis." 

134 LEMUEL WINCHELL (48 Stephen, 13 Stephen, 2 Na- 
thanael, 1 Eobert). Born on the Great Nine Partners' Patent,

Lemuel, with his brother James, removed from Duchess Co. 
to Marbletown, Ulster Co., 1772, at a place called Winchell 's 
Falls on iEsopus Creek. He signed the "Association Test" of 
loyalty to the Continental Congress in 1775. "He was a farmer; 
had a grist-mill, a forge, a saw-mill and carding-machine. ' ' 

From these two brothers have descended a very numerous 
family, still strongly attached, for the greater part, to the fa- 
miliar acres of their ancestors. 781 Dewitt C, says: "I can 
count 29 families by the name of Winchell' ' in Ulster Co., 
besides the females who have married into other families.

James removed from Duchess County to Ulster in 1772 (or 
according to some accounts, "a few years" thereafter). He 
was a soldier and non-commissioned officer (serg.) in the War 
of the Revolution, and after vexatious delays, succeeded in 
securing his pension. 

James' wife, Mary, was aunt to Bishop Elijah Hedding, 
whose mother, Ruth Ferguson, m. James Hedding, the bishop's 
father. Mary possessed some poetical talents; and composed 
''some verses" on occasion of the death of her son James, by 
drowning, in ^Esopus Creek. 

136 JOHN WINCHELL (48 Stephen, 13 Stephen, 2 Nath-

on an ammunition transport for Gen. Jackson in New Orleans, 
and died on the way, and was buried at the mouth of St. Francis 
River, Ark.

328 Mary, b. Ulster Co., N. Y. 

329 Cassandra, b. Ulster Co., N. Y. 

According to Dr. A. A. Simons, of Cloverport, Ky., a grand- 
son of 320 Catherine, 136 John first moved from his father's 
home in Duchess Co. across the Hudson to Ulster Co., N. Y. ; 
later he moved into the next county to the westward (Colchester, 
Delaware Co.), where he seems to have lived for some years 
during which he made a fortune of about thirty thousand dol- 
lars in the lumber business on the Delaware River. John's 
daughter, Catherine, was married at Colchester in 1807. In 
1808 or 1809 John started on a long trip westward with a 
party of seventeen, including his ten children, two children by 
marriage and two grandchildren (873 Ransom and 881 Mel- 
vina). The journey must have been one of many privations 
and dangers, over the worst of roads through the wilderness. 
874 Richard was probably born somewhere on the journey. 
While in Pittsburg, then an unincorporated town of only 400 
houses, they accidentally found Arad Simons, 320 Catherine's 
husband, who had preceded the main party by a considerable 
time, and had not been heard from for months. It was prob- 
ably in Pittsburg that John joined with Burrows and Mc- 
Gregory in the purchase of about 42,000 acres of land, investing 
the greater part of his fortune in this way. The land was part 
of the "Dewees claim or grant," located in Randolph Co., Va. 
(now West Virginia), on the Dry Laurel and Gladys forks of 
the Cheat River. The "Dewees grant" was covered by prior 
grants and the investment proved a complete loss. 

Upon leaving Pittsburg, the family journeyed in a flat-bot- 
tomed boat down the Ohio, stopping for a short time at Cincin- 
nati and Louisville, to Perry Co., Ind., where they arrived 
probably in the fall of 1809. But John's daughter, Catherine, 
remained with her husband (and her sister, Charity) at Louis- 
ville, Ky., where Charity was married. In 1816 or 1817 
Catherine and her family moved to Perry Co. Some of John's 
descendants still live near Rome, Perry Co., Ind., and in Ken- 
tucky near Cloverport. John served in the Revolutionary army.

Lieut. Elisha was extensively engaged in business. Apr. 27, 
1752, when but 24 years old, he purchased an interest in a grist- 
and saw-mill. Apr. 18, 1755, he received from his father, "for 
love and good will," a farm of 43 acres, valued at 800 pounds. 
He continued to make purchases till May 29, 1787, when he 
sold 3 acres to his son Grove. He seems now to have retired 
from business. His house stood on the west side of the road 
leading from the village south toward Hartford, and about a 
mile and a half from the village. It stands close to the street 
and looks as if built for a country tavern. It is now (1867) 
renovated and painted white. The old red wood-shed still 
stands, as also the old barn, on the opposite side of the street. 
On one of the braces of the latter still remain the words, ' ' Elisha 
Winchel, 1756." 

Epitaph of 139 Elisha at Turkey Hills (E. Granby) : "In 
memory of Lieut. Winchell, he died 12 Jan., A. D. 1798, in the 
70 year of his age. 

"His virtues would a monument supply, 
"But underneath this stone his ashes lie."

cilla Cent; d. Granville, Mass. Probably the Martin who m. 
Rachel Salter at Simsbury, Ct., 1795. 

378 Deborah. 

379 Silas, b. Turkey Hills, Ct., 21 Oct., 1772. 

380 Priscilla, d. young. 

381 Martin, b. about 1770. 

149 Martin, being the oldest son, seems to have retained the 
homestead at Turkey Hills. The records show that he engaged 
in numerous transactions in real estate; but lack of space pre- 
vents the publication of abstracts. The last transaction re- 
corded in the records of Windsor and Simsbury is under date of 
31 Aug., 1782, when he sold to his brother Dan, for 800 pounds, 
four pieces of land in Windsor and Simsbury, amounting to 
145 acres. Probably this sale was preparatory to removing to 
Granville, Mass., where he spent the remainder of his life. 
Walter Thrall, Esq., of Columbus, Ohio, states that his house 
was still there in 1809. Martin is well and pleasantly remem- 
bered by some of the oldest citizens of E. Granby, with whom I 
have conversed — especially Mrs. Hannah Clark (mother of El- 
more Clark), who says Martin was a fat man and very humorous, 
and when he laughed his whole body was perceptibly shaken. 
Hence the children sometimes familiarly styled him " Shook.' ' 
He used sometimes to visit his relatives in North East. 1118 
Col. John Winchell, who remembers these visits, says that Mar- 
tin was fleshy and had a bald head, and presented somewhat 
the appearance of his uncle, 382 Dea. James Winchell. He is 
also remembered by 1109 Horace. He was a soldier in 1759. 

150 JAMES WINCHELL (53 Martin, 13 Stephen, 2 Nath- 
anael, 1 Robert). Lieutenant James was born at Turkey Hills, 
Ct., 1741 ; m. Mary Mills near Turkey Hills ; d. North East, N. 
Y., 13 Feb., 1778. Mary was b. 1743 ; d. North East, 11 March, 
1785. 

382 James, b. North East, N. Y., 5 Mar., 1763; m. Chloe Hartwell (see 

Appendix: Hartwell Genealogy), 1785; d. North East, N. Y., 8 



FIFTH GENERATION 107 

Apr., 1834. She was b. 13 Feb., 1764, and d. North East, 4 June, 
1838. As 382 James had no ch., further notice of him is here 
introduced. On the partition of the paternal estate (see 383 Mar- 
tin Ebenezer), he settled, originally as a carpenter, in the valley 
east of Winchell Mountain. On "Ten Mile Creek, " which flowed 
past his residence — at first a simple frame dwelling, afterward 
enlarged to an elegant mansion — he constructed a large flouring 
mill, which he continued to run for many years in connection 
with his farming operations. Subsequently, for 18 years, he rented 
it to Alexander McAllister. By industry and good management, 
James accumulated a large estate which he expended liberally in 
the cause of education and of the church. His parents and all 
his ancestry had belonged to the Presbyterian or Congregational 
church. In 1773, however, the influence of the revival spirit in- 
augurated by Whitefield, resulted in the establishment of a Bap- 
tist society in North East; and in 1775, a chapel had been opened 
on a site which is now embraced in the south part of the burial- 
ground half a mile west of "Spencer's Corner." The children 
of 150 Jamee became heartily identified with this church; and his 
son, 382 James, for many years discharged the office of deacon 
in the church, and performed an active and important part in its 
affairs. In the enlargement of his private mansion in 1826-7, he 
fitted up a large room in the second story, where the society were 
in the habit of holding their meetings during the winter months. 
This was wanned by a stove. This old "Conference Room'' is 
remembered with affection by many. In 1829 a new brick meet- 
ing house was completed at Spencer's Corner, costing about 
$4,700. "Toward this sum there was received from the society 
about $750, and from Dea. James Winchell $1,700." During the 
same year, through his influence and liberality a scholarship was 
raised and a room furnished for the Theological Seminary at 
Hamilton, N. Y. ' ' His name is inscribed on the chapel walls of 
Madison University, in letters which, it is hoped, will not soon be 
effaced. ' ' ' ' He lived a holy and useful life, and died in the full 
enjoyment of the Christian's blissful hope, leaving his example a 
priceless legacy to society, and his real estate a bequest to the 
church for the support of her ministry. ' ' Among other acts of 
benevolence he adopted and educated his orphan niece, Mary Ann 
Winchell. His former dwelling house is now (about 1860) the 
property of Perry Vroman. A noble monument of white marble 
marks his resting place in the burial-ground near Spencer's Cor- 
ner, and the following record is part of his epitaph: "His nu- 
merous bequests to the Baptist church and society in this place 
will long ensure to his memory their esteem and gratitude. ' ' The 
following is part of the epitaph of Chloe, his wife: "Through 
life they walked with God, exhibiting that faith which works by 
love and purifies the heart. In death victorious through our 
Savior Jesus Christ. ' ' 

Since the above was written the Winchell mill has been re- 
placed by an iron furnace, near which the New York and Harlem 



108 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

Bailroad passes. The establishment of the railroad station, Miller- 
ton, deflected the business from the valley in which James Win- 
chell's residence was located, and attracted the Baptist church 
from Spencer's Corner to Millerton. On the death of Perry 
Vroman the old homestead was occupied by others. Otherwise 
"the valley " appears (1896), outwardly, much as it did fifty 
years earlier, with the sole exception that a number of new resi- 
dences have been built on the south side of the creek.

150 James emigrated from Turkey Hills to North East, 
Duchess Co., N. Y., about 1760, a little before attaining his ma- 
jority. His two uncles, 48 Stephen and 52 Robert, had already 
been settled 12 or 15 years in the county. His father, 53 Mar- 
tin, is said to have aided him in effecting a location. Whether 
from a love of mountain slopes and mountain summits, imbibed 
from a residence upon the flanks of the ''Turkey Hill moun- 
tain/ ' — called also the "copper mountain/' — or from a shrewd 
intuition of the extraordinary attractions of the soil and the 
situation, James and his father seem to have alighted upon a 
mountain farm which certainly must have appeared in their day 
infinitely less inviting than the industry of three generations has 
now made it. "Winehell Mountain," so called from the family 
which continued during three generations to possess and culti- 
vate its surface, is one of the ridges of the Taconic Range. The 
summit is a fertile plateau about half a mile in width. In the 
middle of this, on the highway from Salisbury to Rhinebeck, 
James erected his dwelling, the traces of which have been visible 
within my own memory. The prospect from this mountain sum- 
mit is magnificent. I never return to it without renewed pleas- 
ure, and a deeper love of the spot. Toward the east, the blue 
hills of Sharon and Norfolk and Barkhamstead, in Connecticut, 
notch the horizon; while toward the west, the soft, purple 
domes of the distant Catskills rest again the sky; and Mount 
Marcy, seventy miles in the northwest, lifts its head like a 
watch-tower on the Cyclopean ramparts of the Hudson's valley. 
Even toward the north, the Taconic Range, swelling, as it re- 
cedes, into mightier masses, culminates in the bald, granitic 
dome of Mount Washington, which looks down upon three 



FIFTH GENERATION 109 

states. In the presence and under the influence of scenes like 
these, the family of James was reared. 

The "District School" on Winchell Mountain was taught 
during the winter of 1854-55 by 2378 Newton Horace, who re- 
newed his acquaintance with the scenic beauties of the spot, and 
later (1887) purchased the old homestead and the farm, with 
a view to keeping it as a point of reunion of those of the 
Winchell name who were descendants of 150 James, the founder 
of the Duchess sub-branch. But the difficulty of looking after 
the property from so great a distance (Minneapolis, Minn.) 
necessitated the relinquishment of the project, and the place 
was sold to Mr. Hamblin, one of his former pupils in the dis- 
trict school, who now occupies it (1913). 

James and his wife were exemplary members of the Presby- 
terian church in North East; and James "took an active part 
in the measures which resulted in the independence of the states ; 
and was one of the principal supporters of the cause of Liberty 
in the town and county where he resided." His death was 
caused, at the early age of 39, by camp fever taken from a suf- 
fering soldier whom he quartered one night in his house. 

An abstract of his will, dated 1 Feb., 1778, is printed in the 
N. Y. Historical Society Collections for 1905 on page 80. 

The patriots of Duchess Co. in a convention held at Pough- 
keepsie adopted a pledge "that under all the ties of religion, 
honor and love of country, they would adopt and carry into 
execution whatever measures might be recommended by the 
Continental Congress." The pledge was sent into North East 
Precinct July 4, 1775, and James Winchell 's name stands among 
the signers, as well as that of 134 Lemuel. He was a lieutenant 
in the Duchess Co. militia during the Revolution. 

Mary Mills, James' wife, was a woman of extraordinary 
worth. She possessed remarkable strength of mind; great re- 
finement of taste ; excellent tact in the management of household 
affairs, and a sincerely Christian heart. Surviving her hus- 
band seven years, she manifested remarkable endowments in 
the management of the farm and the education of her children. 

Mary Mills was of Dutch descent, being the daughter of 
Ebenezer Mills, a graduate of Yale College and a Presbyterian 
minister. at Turkey Hills, afterward at Sandisfield, Mass. (For 
Mills Genealogy, see Appendix.) 

James Winchell and his wife are buried in the public ceme-

table and influential members of society. Her husband was a 
farmer. He served as an officer in the English service in 1762, 
and as a Captain in the American service during the War of 
the Revolution. He sympathized with the malcontent Shays, in 
1784, and suffered considerably thereby. He removed from 
Windsor to Granville, Mass., before the Revolution and was a 
member of the .Massachusetts legislature in 1788. In 1790 he 
removed to Rutland, Vt.

156 Nathanael 's house at Turkey Hills was on the west side 
of the Bloomfield road, about a quarter of a mile south of the 
intersection of the Windsor road. In 1867 the site was a tobacco 
field, with no trace of the house or its appurtenances remaining, 
save a slight depression where the well used to be. The old 
barn stands close to the road, on the opposite and lower hill 
side. 

Nathanael, between 1768 and 1786 made eight distinct pur- 
chases of real estate at Turkey Hills, of which I find records at 
Windsor and Simsbury. The total amount paid was 584 pounds. 
Sept. 23, 1771, he purchased "a mansion house," which was 
perhaps the one above referred to. He probably removed, not 
long after the beginning of 1786, to Vermont. 

Nathanael was Ensign in the Revolutionary army, and was 



112 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

present at the execution of Andre. He was later Captain in the 
Connecticut Light Horse Militia. He is said to have been 
subject to fits of nervous melancholy. The following is the epi- 
taph of his first wife, from the cemetery at Turkey Hills: 
"Elizabeth, wife of Ensign Nathanael Winchell, died 20 Feb., 
1775, aged 20." The stone stands erect. On the foot-stone 
are the initials, "N. W."

Jan. 10, 1774, Dan bought land in Windsor, bordering on 
Simsbury. Aug. 31, 1782, he bought of his brother Martin, for 
800 pounds, 144 acres in Windsor and Simsbury. Apr. 1, 1783, 
he bought, in company with Nathanael (both of Simsbury 1 ), 
several parcels of land in Turkey Hills for 295 pounds ; Mar. 19, 

1784, sold the land bought of Martin, for 700 pounds; Dec. 14, 

1785, made an exchange with Nathanael, and at the same time 
bought 7 acres of Joel Clark. May 10, 1790, he sold 11 acres in 
Windsor for 15 pounds. July 27, 1791, his residence was Gran- 
ville, Hampshire Co., Mass., when he sold Oliver Winchell 17% 
acres in Granby (Turkey Hills), for 17 pounds. His brother 
Martin had preceded him at Granville by about 8 years. From 
Granville he removed to W. Rutland, Vt., and, about 1805, to 
Pomfret. 

Dan used to visit his relatives at North East, Duchess Co., 
N. Y., and he is remembered by 1109 Horace and 1118 John as 
"a somewhat portly man with gray eyes and chestnut hair, 
jovial, fond of story-telling and very social.' '

1 The boundaries between Windsor and Simsbury seem to have been 
uncertain. Turkey Hills, a parish of Windsor, is sometimes referred to 
one town and sometimes to the other. Not unfrequently the same trans- 
action is found recorded in both towns.

376 John removed to Detroit in 1835 ; he was a teacher there 
in 1838; a school director in 1840, a school inspector in 1842. 
He served in the War of 1812, being wounded at the battle of 
Lundy's Lane. The following account of him was printed in 
the Detroit Free Press, 24 Oct., 1885 : 



A GENUINE VET. 

A CHAT WITH JOHN WINCHELL, WHO IS ALMOST A CENTENARIAN — 
WHAT HE REMEMBERS ABOUT THE FIGHT AT LUNDY'S LANE. 

At No. 123 Fort Street east in an old-fashioned house which 
is back from the street quite a distance lives John Winchell, 
whose name appears in the last directory of the "city with the 
title "teacher" opposite it. Mr. Winchell is of short stature, 
with a slight, wiry figure. He was born ninety-two years ago 
and even now shows in his bright eye and rather sprightly step 
a vitality quite remarkable. Mr. Winchell was born in Kings- 
bury, Washington Co., N. Y. As he puts it, he ' ' was the last in a 
family of eleven children and weighed four and one-half pounds 
at birth." 

The other day a reporter for The Free Press visited Mr. 
Winchell and found that, barring a severe deafness, he was a 
most agreeable companion. His memory is good, he is jovial 
and well satisfied with his lot. He first came to Detroit as a 
sailor in 1822, but he did not locate here until 1835. 

At the outbreak of the War of 1812 Mr. Winchell enlisted 
under Col. Dobbins, of New York State, and he was mustered 
in with the rest of the command at Batavia, N. Y. He made 
the march to the mouth of the Niagara River, and among other 
interesting experiences took part in the battle of Lundy's Lane, 
where he was wounded in the left arm. When asked as to his 
remembrance of the fight he said: "I remember that the few 
American soldiers who were there fought hard. Our little force 
— the volunteers — were on the left with the regulars on the 
right. This placed us 'green' soldiers opposite the Royal Scots 
and Scotch Grays, veterans of the opposing forces and at a dis- 
advantage. In making one advance we had to fire and run 
alternately as best we could. In those days we had no cartridges 
and breech loaders. We had to trust in God and keep our 
powder dry, because flint-locks and priming-pans couldn't stand 
much rain or even dew. When the order came for us to retreat 
we were about six rods from the enemy and some of us didn't 
hear the order."

SIXTH GENERATION 153 

"And you were captured?'' 

1 ' No, but it confused us for a time. It was at that juncture 
that I got my wound. The shot knocked my musket out of my 
hand. Lieut. Solomon Close, who lived for a long time near 
Pontiac in after, years, was in my company and he ordered me 
to the rear. I told him I wanted my musket. He said he would 
bring it along, but that didn't do me. I went back and picked 
up my musket before retiring." 

In referring to his youth, Mr. Winchell told of feats of 
strength he performed, and of other herculean performances 
done when he was long past the meridian of life. Once, at a 
barn-raising down near Monroe, Mr. Winchell and his son lifted 
and carried a timber the like of which had previously tested 
the strength of six men, and once on the wharf, near the foot of 
First Street, Mr. Winchell lifted half of a safe weighing 1300 
pounds. As is common with such very old men, Mr. Winchell 
took particular delight in referring to his muscular development 
"when 'bout 60 years old, younger and more active." 

When asked if he remembered Gen. Scott and Gen. Brady at 
Lundy Lane, he replied: "Yes, I remember seeing 'em there 
many times, though of course, I was a private and had no busi- 
ness with them. I can say this, however, old Gen. Brady was 
always ahead of us right where the fire was the hottest — at the 
battle of Chippewa and the fight . at Niagara — and he never 
asked his men to go where he did not lead." 

The following is from the Boston Home Journal, 28 July, 

1888: 

John Winchell of Detroit has been in Washington lately 
looking up some arrears of the pension which was granted him 
for wounds received in 1814 in the battle of Lundy 's Lane. Mr. 
Winchell is ninety-one years of age and is quite blind and deaf. 
In his recent journey he was accompanied by his daughter, who 
is sixty years old.

379 Silas was a man of wealth and intellect, and conse-

organized a colony which removed from Granville, Mass., and 
settled in Licking County, O., at a place which they also named 
Granville. Though a western pioneer he gave his daughters an 
excellent education. "He was one of the leading men of his 
community," — was banker and deacon in the church. "A 
sermon on the death of Dea. Silas Winchell and wife was pub- 
lished by Rev. Jacob Little."

the War of 1812; d. Western, Oneida Co., N. Y., "about 1852,

m. Josiah Besemer and had Martin Besemer, who m. Mary Wol- 
cott. Joanna d. about 1850, when Besemer m. again, and lived 
at Motts Corners, Tompkins Co., N. Y. (1869). 

Abraham received a liberal education at Yale and Harvard 
Colleges, and subsequently studied law three years under Gen. 
James Talmadge of Poughkeepsie, N. Y. He settled in his native 
town, but seems not to have made any great efforts to secure a 
large practice. He was remarkably well read in law, however, 
and would have made an excellent judge. He possessed a calm, 
judicial mind, regulated at all times by the keenest sense of justice 
and the purest principles of morality. He possessed remarkable 
elegance and fluency of diction. Few men wielded a more facile 
or a more graceful pen. His neighbors freely appealed to him to 
resolve all their legal doubts. He served them as justice of the 
peace and as school inspector. He seconded all educational enter- 
prises, and never omitted the opportunity to encourage a young 
man aspiring for knowledge. His letters from Yale College to 
his brother Horace, in 1815-16-17, are model expressions of fra- 
ternal solicitude and counsel. The writer is indebted to him for 
some early impulses, and remembers his encouraging words with 
gratitude to his memory. He always calculated that his nephew 
would secure a liberal education, but mistakenly allotted him to 
the profession of law. For some years before removing west he 
occupied the farm that had belonged to Deacon James Winchell; 
and inherited from him the care of his niece Mary Ann. In Dry- 
den, he settled on a farm. At his death he bequeathed to the 
writer "all his Latin, Greek and French books." Personally, 
Abraham was tall, with rather spare features, a high forehead, and 
an eye beneath whose habitual languor slumbered flashes of fire. 
In matters of faith he held to "open communion" and unitarian-

Clarasa, Clarace or Clarissa Hartwell, was dau. of Maj. Abra- 
ham Hartwell of North East, who was son of Peter Hartwell 
from England, who came to Hebron, Conn., about 1740. Abra- 
ham Hartwell settled in 1766 at "the old Hartwell place," on 
the brow of the hill, two- thirds of a mile west of Spencer's 
Corner (settled in 1746), and half a mile east of the "old 
Lawrence place" (settled in 1767). The "Hartwell place" 
passed into the hands of Lucius Hotehkiss about 1826 or 7, and 
was bought by Alexander McAllister, about 1835, who repaired 
and improved it, and, after occupying it till about 1841, sold to 
Orville Dakin. A crowd of personal recollections clusters around 
the spot; but in 1867, one hundred and one years after settle- 
ment, the very site was a wheat field, nothing but the old well 
remaining to mark the spot. 

(On my visiting this spot in 1898 in the company of cousin 
Orrin Wakeman of Millerton, Orrin said, "Newton, did you 
ever know a lilac to die of old age ? ' ' and pointed to an old lilac 
bush growing still on the old site. On leaving the buggy it was 
a pleasure to find also the "old well" near the lilac bush. A 
sprig which I took hung in my study several years, but finally the 
house-cleaning fiend destroyed it. N. H. W.) 

Col. M. E. Winchell's wife is remembered as a woman of 
great mental and bodily vigor, even to the time of her death. 
For some time, Col. Martin E. kept a house of entertainment 
for travellers; and it is said that strangers often mistook his 
wife for one of the daughters.

was left with his brothers, 382 James and 384 Philo M., upon 
an estate which proved to be heavily encumbered with an obliga- 
tion growing out of an endorsement by their father. These 
three boys, having taken counsel together, resolved to devote 
themselves to the work of rescuing the homestead from impend- 
ing sacrifice. Never did young men labor with their own 
hands more industriously or more resolutely. Encouraged and 
counseled by their most excellent mother, they had the satisfac- 
tion of seeing the debt steadily diminish ; and in good time, the 
old homestead was their own. James, the eldest, had left the 
firm, as a carpenter, and settled in the valley, adjoining Esq. 
Martin Lawrence. Aaron Ely, the youngest, who had been a 
sort of ward of his older brothers, had settled as a merchant at 
Pine Plains. Martin E. and Philo M. continued to work the 
farm in partnership for many years, until they had come into 
unencumbered possession of about 600 acres. Finally 385 John 
and 1108 Abraham were called upon to make a division of the 
estate in behalf of the joint owners. This was effected by lot. 
Martin E. drew the half which embraced the original buildings, 1 
and Philo M. received the eastern portion of the farm. These 
two brothers — as also James and Aaron E. — erected each in 
1806 a fine large two-story dwelling house. 2 These buildings 
were for sixty years unsurpassed in style and elegance by any 
structures of later erection in their respective neighborhoods, 
and to this day (1913), notwithstanding incidental repairs and 
alterations, they are conspicuous for their size and their archi- 
tecture and apparently as sound and useful as ever. 

Martin E. was a man of strong intelligence, and great dignity 
and composure of manners, exercising a cool and mature judg- 
ment and securing for himself the respect and confidence of a 
large neighborhood. He was remarkably kind to the poor, inso- 
much that this trait is mentioned in his epitaph. He was a 
warm adherent and supporter of the Baptist church of North 
East. The Centennial Church Book says of him: "He was 
baptized in 1786, and consecrating himself to Christ, he brought 
his natural ardor of temperament, and great energy of mind 
into active employment in the service of Christianity. He was 
very gifted in prayer and exhortation, and often spoke with a

the farm.

town, Ct.

wisdom which few could resist. It was his honor, likewise, to 
be a pillar in the church, and to occupy an elevated position in 
society. At an early period he recognized the claims of minis- 
terial education, and gave to his son, the Rev. James M. Winchell, 
advantages which he employed to the best account. * * * 
His memory is still fresh and grateful." He was colonel of 
militia, commanding the 29th regiment of the 20th brigade ; and 
represented his assembly district in the legislature in 1826, and 
again in 1827. He also served as justice of the peace. A 
portrait of him exists in the possession of his youngest daughter, 
Mrs. Milan Brown, Millerton, Duchess Co., N. Y. ; it is repro- 
duced herewith.

The traits of character exemplified by Philo M. and his 
brothers in clearing their paternal inheritance from incum- 
brance, have already been mentioned under 383 Martin E. The 
discipline acquired, and the habits formed during this struggle, 
laid the foundation of subsequent prosperity and wealth. From 
the biography of Philo M., written by 1108 Abraham, I make a 
few extracts. He united with the Baptist church in North East 
in 1786, and soon took rank among the most promising members. 
The prominent traits of his character were ' ' enterprise, decision, 
activity, perseverance, quick discernment and sound judgment. ' ' 
In 1829 he was chosen to the legislature of the state, and proved 
himself a competent and useful member. As a man, his reputa- 
tion was unsullied; as a Christian, he was loved and revered; 
as a church member, his character for consistency, piety and 
zeal, was deservedly high; and as a citizen, he was greatly re- 
spected and honored. Long had he been among the pillars of

the church, bearing his full share of responsibility, and dis- 
charging promptly his obligations. As might be expected, his 
death caused a profound melancholy in the church and in 
community. 

Of his wife it has been written that "in her was strikingly 
exemplified all the qualities of a good wife and mother. "

385 John was the fourth Baptist minister over the church in 
North East. "He itinerated quite extensively, and his labors 
were crowned with great success. He was instrumental in rais- 
ing up several churches, among which may be mentioned the 
church in Sandisfield, Mass., and the First Baptist church in 
Hartford, Ct. He was for some time minister of a church in 
New York City." "He was a pathetic and stirring preacher. 
While at New York, during the American Revolution, he was 
called to preach to the soldiers, and there was a great reformation 
under his preaching." He embraced the doctrine of "open 
communion. ' '

388 Aaron Ely, on the partition of his father's estate, set- 
tled at Pine Plains 1 Duchess Co., N. Y., where he engaged in 
mercantile business, and enjoyed great prosperity for many 
years. He was for a long time reputed the wealthiest man in 
the place. Like his older brothers, he possessed a very respectable 
endowment of the gift of public speaking. The writer distinctly 
remembers, when attending the burial of 382 James, in 1834, 
the earth had been thrown in the grave, the friends were 
crowded around, and Aaron E. suddenly stood forth, and raising 
his hand, addressed the crowd. He alluded to the impressive cir- 
cumstance that he now was the only one surviving of a large 
family of brothers ; and continued, for a few minutes, in a strain 
of remark which thrilled the hearts of his listeners. He sur- 
vived 14 yrs., when his own funeral was attended at Pine 
Plains. 

Frequent mention is made of his public services in the History 
of Little Nine Part tiers, by Isaac Huntting, 1897.

"Tip Winchell is dead!" 

This "flash" of the death of Topping S. Winchell, bailiff 
in the Seattle municipal court for the past decade and a half, 
affected the average newspaper staff of the city as few news 
items have done. For "Tip" Winchell was, if anything, a 
newspaperman 's institution. 

The average local newspaper reporter has at one time or an- 
other during the past fifteen years "covered" police court. And 
"Tip" Winchell was his friend. His was the hand that guided

he had to take the corn he had for seed and go 35 miles horseback 
to mill. While he was away, the Indians cut him off, and the 
family were compelled to dig up the potatoes that were planted 
to keep alive until he could get back. When he moved from 
North Carolina he took all his belongings on a one-horse cart, had 
a long bed that turned up behind and in front. Grandma rode 
on top of the load. The rest walked. ' '

705 Thomas Jefferson was the celebrated ventriloquist and 
humorist. From his mother he inherited that gift of drollery 
and caricature which gave him a national reputation; while the 
delicacy and propriety of sentiment, and the fine poetic genius 
which always embellished his representations, and commended 
them to people of taste and education, were the gift of his 
father. From a child he manifested a marvelous power of 
mimicry, and an irrepressible propensity to "take off" suitable 
subjects for satire. On the fourth of July, 1824, he left his 
father's home in Baltimore, Md., and went to New York; he 
afterward took up his residence in Newark, N. J., where he 
remained several years; he then settled in Schenectady, N. Y. 
On one of his trips into Saratoga Co. he became acquainted with 
Harriet Catherine Green, whom he married in January, 1833. 

In December, 1835, he commenced his public career under the 
management of the talented Wm. Duffy. ' His first appearance 
was a complete success, and he was eagerly caught up by Henry 
Meech, the proprietor of the then very popular Albany Museum. 
For some years he had continual engagements in the museums of 
the different cities of the United States ; he then went to South 
America; upon his return, he travelled alone, making no more 
engagements with the museums. His artistically accurate "liv- 
ing portraits" made him a great favorite with the people; and 
years after his death many a one has been heard to exclaim: 
"There's but one Winchell!" 

Innumerable anecdotes are told of his achievements in the 
way of ventriloquism ; and his plays (always written by himself) 
are so full of it, that they can never be used by any other person. 
He was never personal, considering it a thing inexcusable; 
neither did he use the slightest deception, though he often took 
forty different characters in one evening, and would never al- 
low any other person to take any of the parts, however subordi- 
nate it might be. His transformations were so perfect that the 
spectators seldom believed that one and the same person took all 
the different parts. His imitation of what was called a music 
box was really something wonderful. In performing this feat 
he carried seven different notes at one and the same time, sus- 
taining them without inspiration for fully five minutes. Want 
of space forbids further description. 



198 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

In personal appearance Mr. Winchell was prepossessing, be- 
ing of herculean frame, over six feet in height, well proportioned, 
and of great muscular strength. 

His benevolence was great; many a friendless sufferer still 
remembers his acts of kindness. His last public performance 
was an offering to humanity and his country. He had been 
performing about two weeks in Lafayette, Ind., and, although 
feeling very unwell, gave his final entertainment at Spenser 
Hall for the benefit of the Soldiers' Aid Society; he was then 
prostrated, and passed away on the morning of Feb. 18, 1863, 
having been before the public twenty-eight years. 

He left two daughters, one residing (1897) in St. Louis, Mo., 
the other (1897) in Detroit, Mich.

977 Col. Elias was a merchant and postmaster at West 
Springfield till 1836, when the commercial crash ruined him 
financially. So gathering up his family of seven children he 
turned his back upon the luxuries of his New England home, 
and plunged into the almost unbroken solitudes of the great 
west. In June, 1837, he arrived with his family, at Quincy, 



SEVENTH GENERATION 221 

111. The next spring he settled on a tract of wild land in 
Shelby County, Mo., 23 miles west of Palmyra. Here a farm 
was opened; by industry and good judgment field was added 
to field; flocks and herds were gathered; orchards began to 
spring up, and the comforts of New England were transplanted 
in the wilderness. Meantime another business — land agency — 
began to outstrip the farming interest, and in 1853 he removed 
to Palmyra. Returning in 1856, for the first time, to New Eng- 
land, he died in Boston, at the residence of one of his sons. 

Though making no profession of religion till the age of 55 
years, his life was most exemplary and Christian-like. His 
children received regular biblical instruction on the Sabbath, 
and he was himself most punctual in his attendance at church. 

The character of his wife seems to have been singularly 
lovely. She inspired the deepest affection in the hearts of her 
children. One of them in speaking of her says, "She was a 
gem." She possessed marked intellectuality; and, in her earlier 
years, was quite familiar with the prominent authors — especially 
the poets, from whom she often quoted freely. She always kept 
herself well informed in regard to the state of the country ; and 
was able to converse upon the subject in the most intelligent 
mariner. After removal to Missouri, the entire education of her 
youngest son devolved upon her ; and in the midst of multiplied 
and onerous duties, she imparted to him an education unsur- 
passed by that of any of his older brothers. She died with the 
blessings of all her acquaintances resting upon her. Seldom has 
the memory of the departed been so fondly cherished by so large 
a circle of relatives and Christian friends. Obituary notice is 
printed in Nathanael Ely and His Descendants, p. 130.

978 Rev. Reuben H., while living in Whateley, was a mer- 
chant; but at the close of the War of 1812 he failed. Being of 
a religious temper, he had believed himself called upon to be 
a minister of the gospel, but first entered upon the profession 
of teaching at Jersey City. The climate not agreeing with his 
wife's health, he removed to Hamilton, N. Y., and entered the 
Theological Seminary. After leaving it, he settled at Avon, 
N. Y., whence, in 1825, he removed to Lockport, N. Y. Soon 
after, he joined the Masonic order, but during the Morgan excite- 
ment publicly renounced it, thereby making bitter enemies, whose 
persecutions followed him for many years. Receiving a call from 
Wethersfield, Conn., he settled there, in 1828, and remained one 
year, when he felt impelled to return to Lockport, where he had 
bought 100 acres of wild land, and where he desired to meet 
many slanderous reports set afloat by his enemies. While living 
on his farm here, he traveled as a Sunday-school agent, organiz- 
ing societies and churches in that region, including a portion 
of Canada. In 1831 he emigrated to Kalamazoo, Mich. — going 
in the winter with his family, by land, from Queenston by 
way of Detroit. He organized the 1st Baptist Church at Com : 
stock in Galesburg, Mich., 19 Feb., 1832. The ague and the 
Indian war limited the residence to one summer, and he re- 
turned to Lockport in the fall. In the autumn of 1833, he be- 
came pastor of the church in Tully, N. Y., remaining a year 
and a half, when he yielded to the earnest request of the society 
at Queenston, Canada, and settled there. His throat, however, 
becoming affected by public speaking, he resolved to abandon it ; 
and settling his family on his farm at Lockport, he engaged as 
a financial traveling agent for the American Baptist Home Mis- 
sionary Society, continuing in their employ as long as his health 
permitted — probably till 1842. He now resided on his farm at 
Lockport, till 1848 or 1849, when he removed to Tully, where 
he died. He was a most laborious and conscientious clergyman 
— his forte being conciliation and organization. Nearly all his 
churches he found distracted by feuds, and demoralized; he al-

ways left them united and vigorous, and apparently much averse 
to his departure.

He d. 16 Jan., 1899, at Lawrence, Kansas. Original proprietor 
of " Lawrence House," Lawrence, Kan. 

Col. Shalor W. Eldridge removed from Mass. to Kansas City, 
Mo., Jan., 1855. He was for some time proprietor of the " Amer- 
ican Hotel" there. In the spring of 1856 he purchased the hotel 
known as the "Free State," in Lawrence, but it was destroyed 
the day before it was to be opened, 21 May, 1856. In the spring 
of 1857, he built upon the same spot a much larger and better 
hotel. For some time it was the largest west of St. Louis. It 
was destroyed at the time of the "Lawrence Massacre," 21 Aug., 
1863. He rebuilt it again in 1865, and it is still standing, though 
he does not own it. In 1868 he erected a large hotel in Kansas 
City, Mo., which his brother Thomas now owns. Col. Shalor and 
his brother Edwin are now in the coal business in Missouri (1868). 

He attended the Philadelphia convention which nominated 
Fremont and was also a delegate to the Buffalo convention where 
he was appointed one of the National committeemen, and made 
agent for the Kansas immigration. 

He enlisted as a private in the Second Kansas regiment; 
was chosen lieutenant and served six months in the " Kansas 
War." In 1863 he was appointed a paymaster in the United 
States army by Pres. Lincoln. In 1868 he was appointed Quarter- 
master General of Kansas by the Kansas Legislature. The next 
year he was elected City Marshal of Lawrence. 

His wife Mary seems to have been endowed with rare gifts.

Later she was president of the Woman's Temperance League, and 
a member of the "praying band" which closed all the saloons in 
Hillsboro; she delivered the first public address by a lady during 
the Ohio Crusade. (Mentioned in Woman and Temperance, by 
Frances E. Willard, p. 59.) "Into her life there had come more 
sadness than I ever knew to enter one life. She kept herself 
so pure and true, making every action vocal with the harmony of 
holy living." So writes 2296 Lucy.

Her husband is spoken of (Silliman's Journal) as the founder 
of Marietta College, O. He founded the Episcopal Seminary at 
Gambier, and held the presidency two years. He then entered 
the ministry of the M. E. Church ; and after traveling some years 
was appointed to the presidency of the Preparatory Department 
of the Ohio Wesleyan University, Delaware, Ohio. Pending his 
entrance on the duties of the position, he preached at Chester- 
ville ; and his wife had the care of a Seminary there, in which 
she met with great success in her religious efforts. He raised 
means to found the Biblical Professorship at Delaware ; and 
then became President of Xenia Female College; subsequently 
he was one of the founders of Wilberforce University. Mean- 
time he and his wife assumed the editorship of The Beauty of 
Holiness, which they removed to New York City, and conducted 
with exceeding success till the breaking out of the Civil War. 
Mr. French then enlisted as a Chaplain in the Regular Army. 
His field of labor was South Carolina. He became deeply inter- 
ested in the measures which led to the establishment of the 
Freedmen's Bureau, and was an intimate cooperator with Gen. 
O. O. Howard in securing the requisite legislation and in the 
management of the affairs of the Bureau. 

Mrs. French speaks of their busy and earnest life as "one 
long sacrifice, though a joyful one, by grace."

1107 James Manning was prepared for college at Sharon, 
Ct., in 1806-8, under Rev. Daniel Parker. He entered Union 
College in 1808, and remained three years; but preferring to 
graduate at an institution patronized by his own Church, he en- 
tered Brown University, and graduated in 1812. Oct. 4th of 
the same year he was licensed to preach by the Baptist Church 
in North East ; and in June, 1813, was ordained, at Bristol, R. I. 



240 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

March 14th, 1814, he was installed pastor over the First Baptist 
Church in Boston, where he occupied the difficult position of 
successor to the great Dr. Stillman. Here he remained to the 
early close of his active and useful life. On Saturday, the 17th 
of July, 1819, he visited Beverly in his usual health, and the 
next day preached three sermons; but was immediately taken 
unwell, and never preached afterwards. He suffered from bleed- 
ing of the lungs. His funeral sermon was preached by Rev. 
Dr. Baldwin, of Boston. Dr. Wayland, also, if my memory 
serves me, preached a funeral sermon from the text, "He was 
a burning and a shining light," which has been published. 

As a preacher Dr. Rufus Babcock compares him with Sum- 
merfield. ' ' In person rather below the medium size, his youthful 
vivacity was finely tempered by a dignified Christian urbanity. 
His elocution was distinct, impressive and most winning. Well 
can I conceive how his associates, Dr. Baldwin and Dr. Sharp, 
should each have exclaimed at his death: 'I am distressed for 
thee, my brother ; very dear hast thou been to me ; thy love was 
wonderful/ " 

He was, at the time of his death, joint editor, with Drs. Bald- 
win and Sharp, of the American Baptist Magazine, which an- 
nounced his death in March, 1820. A biographical sketch was 
published July, 1820, Vol. II, pp. 345-353. He was also the editor 
of an edition of Watts' hymns, which was widely used by the 
Baptist churches in America under the title of Winchell's 
Watts. He excelled as a musician, and published a work on 
sacred harmony. He was also the author of Two Discourses ex- 
hibiting a Historical Sketch of the First Baptist Church in Bos- 
ton, 1819, to which reference has before been made. He was 
regarded as destined to the presidency of Brown University. He 
was president of the Young Men's Auxiliary Baptist Education 
Society in Boston. 

The fragrance of his name lingers not only in the affections 
of his surviving relatives, but in the memory of many survivors 
in the villages of eastern Massachusetts, to whom he ministered 
occasionally during the six laborious years of his residence in 
Boston. (See Sprague's Annals of the American Pulpit, vol. iv, 
p. 595.)

SEVENTH GENERATION 241 

List of Deaths in Boston, 1810 to 1824. This says : ' ' Kev. James 
M. Winchell died 22 Feb., 1820. Aged 28, of consumption." 
Buried in Tomb "99 C. Hill 0. G." (C. Hill means "Copp's 
Hill" and 0. G. signifies "Old Ground" — to which subsequently 
an addition was made. From another book I find: "Buried 
Feb. 25. Winslow, Undertaker." The names of the owners of 
the tomb are first, William Alexander and Prince Snow. These 
are crossed out and the name of Ann Freeland stands as the 
owner. 

I found Edward McDonald the Superintendent of "Copp's 
Hill and Burial Ground," who took me to tomb 99. It is on 
the east side near the middle close by the iron fence. Here 
is a slate slab, leaning against the fence on the inside of which 
I find "No. 99, Tomb of Ann Freeland. Repaired 1845." On 
the opposite side of the slab next the fence is this: "William 
Alexander and Prince Snow, Junr's Tomb, October, 1807." All 
this agrees with the record. The name of James M. Winchell 
does not anywhere appear in this cemetery, and that is the rea- 
son of my failure to find his place of burial in 1869 * when I 
searched for it in company with Edward Johnson. 

At a reception in Melrose I met Mrs. Mary Livermore, who 
states that when a young girl she attended the First Baptist 
Church and often heard Uncle James preach. She says that 
Ann Freeland and Prince Snow, whom she remembers, were his 
parishioners. It seems probable that his body was deposited in 
Ann Freeland 's tomb with a view to subsequent removal to the 
family burial ground at North East, where a monument has been 
erected to his memory.

The following sketch of 1109 Horace is compiled from that 
printed in the first edition of this work, written by his son 
Alexander, and from a manuscript written by his son-in-law, 
Edward Johnson, which was found among the papers of Prof. 
Johnson after his death at Lynn, Mass., in the latter part of 
the winter of 1893-1894, evidently written in 1873. In the com- 
pilation the writer (N. H. W.) has added some facts and re- 
flections based on his own knowledge. 

Horace was destined by his father (383 Martin Ebenezer) for 
a professional life and was given a thorough preparation for a 
collegiate course of study, at a somewhat famous classical school 
conducted at Sharon, Conn., by Rev. Daniel Parker. He was 
later in school at Poughkeepsie, N. Y. He was with his brother, 
1107 Rev. James M. Winchell, at Boston, during two years, and 
for three months attended the Phillips Academy at Andover. 
Here he was in poor health, and he returned (1817) abruptly 
to his father's house, at 21 years of age. He was shaping his 
studies with the intention of being a Baptist minister, in the 
church fellowship in which he was born and bred. He became 
dissatisfied with the tenets and practices of this church and 
absorbed in an effort to effect reforms within his church, and 
this effort he extended to the community and finally to the world. 
His ministerial mission became a sacred and impelling evangel 
to humanity. He was married in 1823 at 27 years of age when 
he was in the initial fervor of his independent ministry. He 
labored by personal appeal, by public addresses, and by printed 
works. He traversed on foot the country about, burdened with 
a liberal supply of his own and other pamphlets which he dis- 
tributed widely and usually free of cost to the recipient. He 
lost the favor of his church and the confidence of his family 
and friends. On the death of his father in 1828 it was found that 
his share in the estate was diminished because of this lack of 
confidence. He was ostracised by his church and by society. The 
community in which he was born and in which he spent the 
greater portion of his days was dominated by the Baptist sect; 
and by most to whom he made his appeals he was received as 
a fanatical reformer. They turned away with indifference or

heard him with stolid silence; but those who met him as he 
desired found him armed at all points.. Few have had a more 
exact and extensive knowledge of the literal Scriptures, and his 
power of quotation was amazing. He seemed to see every verse 
in the Bible, and when he quoted a verse he usually gave its 
number and chapter, others correlated with it rushing into juxta- 
position at his bidding. 

His first work, of 112 pages, was published as early as 1827, 
and was entitled The Uniting of all Christians. In this he pleads 
for the breaking down of the barriers between the sects ; for the 
arbitration of national disputes, without resort to war, and the 
abolition of the system of slavery. Every one conversant with 
the progress of modern events must perceive that he was one of 
the very foremost to put forward three great moral ideas, whose 
agitation has characterized the age in which we live. In 1836 
he published a pamphlet entitled A Plea for Reform; and in 
1839, a Sequel to this. Other pamphlets followed in rapid suc- 
cession, until no less than 22 considerable publications emanated 
from his pen. His style is characterized by great simplicity, un- 
reserve and copiousness of scriptural and historical quotations. 

The chief positions which he always maintained are the 
following: 1. The sinfulness of sectarianism., and especially the 
practice of close communion; 2. The duty of non-resistance, 
even in courts of law ; 3. The sin of slavery; 4. The absurdity 
of the trinitarian doctrine. 5. The right of confuting the min- 
ister in the pulpit. Incidentally he taught also the doctrine of 
the destruction of the wicked, and the literal reign of Christ 
during the millennium; and later insisted upon the imminent 
consummation of the prophetic periods, and the near approach 
of the end of the world. 

In short, he was a man who was ahead of his day in most of 
the principles which he advocated, but his voice was like a voice 
in the wilderness. His patrimony vanished in the face of gen- 
eral distrust and disbelief, and he was reduced to financial ex- 
tremity. He never wavered, however, in his religious dogmas. 
He was one of the California "forty-niners," but he came back 
poorer than he went. His last days were spent at Lakeville, 
Ct., in arduous preparation of a new publication. 

He died rather suddenly, of blood-poisoning resulting from 
a slight wound on his thumb which he received from a splinter 
when splitting wood at home. Almost before he knew the se- 
verity of his disease he was unable to articulate. Of his family

those present were only his wife and his daughter Antoinette 
(Mrs. Johnson). His four living sons, summoned at once from 
Minnesota, Chicago, and Syracuse, N. Y., arrived only in time 
to bear him to his tomb, which was in the cemetery at Spencer's 
Corner. On his grave stone, below his name and the dates of 
his birth and death, were simply the words : 
How often he said : 

"I do not expect my reward in this world.'' 
After the death of his wife in 1892 his remains and those 
of his deceased daughters Clarissa and Laura were removed to 
the cemetery at Winchell mountain, and all were interred there 
with a common granite monument marking the spot.

Short was our passage to the grave; 

Yet not in those cold vaults we dwell; 
We rose with Him who died to save, 

And all, dear parents, all is well. 

[Emily's Words] 

In those bright mansions of the blest 

Where never dying anthems swell, 
Sweetly in Jesus' arms we rest. 

Then, till you join us there, farewell.

Of infant ashes; yet with Christ ye dwell; 

And to his throne our anxious eyes we turn. 

Then, till again we greet you there, farewell.

N. Y., 29 Sept., 1858, who was b. 3 July, 1832. Was ordained 
to the Baptist ministry at Logansport, Ind., and was pastor of 
the church there in 1859-60; was editor and publisher of the 
Witness — a Baptist paper for Ind. — about 4% years (about half 
this time in partnership with M. G. Clark). At this time the 
Witness and the Christian Times, of Chicago, were united; and 
for two years he was associate editor of the new paper, residing 
at Indianapolis. In the autumn of 1868 he connected himself 
with the Baptist mission in India — taking the appointment of 
1 ' Missionary and Printer, ' ' with his station at Sibsagor in As- 
sam, a province in eastern India. He was to have charge of the 
Baptist printing establishment at that place. He sailed with his 
wife 21 Oct., 1868. 

2428 Edward W. graduated with A. M. at Brown University 
in 1857; given degree of D. D. by same in 1906 — largely for re- 
ducing to writing one more of the languages of India, and for 
work in that language and respecting it. 

In 1876 at his own request he was released from the work 
at Sibsagor to commence mission work among the savage hill 
tribes south of Assam. On application to the Governor General 
of India representing the Crown of England for consent to take 
up his abode on these hills beyond English jurisdiction, he was 
told he must do so at his own personal risk, not depending upon 
the English Government for protection or redress. Here with 
his wife he has toiled, — is toiling still, — has given to this un- 
lettered Naga tribe a written language — the Gospel and books. 
Schools have been established, churches organized, and a knowledge 
more or less of the wide world opened to them. Several of these 
formerly savage tribes have accepted Christianity and are an- 
nexed to the English government. Other missionaries have fol- 
lowed and the work is still progressing. Mr. Clark is now on 
the field to complete a Naga-English dictionary after which he 
will expect to retire. During these 42% years of service he 
has had only two furloughs and these 2 or 2% years each. 

His wife has published a sketch of this work entitled A Cor- 
ner in India.

barracks at Plattsburg by the British in 1813 ; the next, of the 
severe winter of 1815-16, when his only clothing consisted of a 
woolen shirt, while his father lived at Ticonderoga in a poor 
log house. When his father removed to Shoreham, Vt., Amaziah 
worked among the farmers for 12% cents a day. At 17, he was 
bound out; at 21, he received $50 and his father $60 for his

then spent ten years in traveling through the middle and south- 
ern states, when, after marrying, he settled in his native town.

Of his children, 2603 Ann and 2607 Harriet became noted as 
teachers in the schools of Chicago. On the day after the death 
of the elder the Chicago Record -Herald printed the following: 

"Chicago school children, both the younger and the 'grown- 
ups,' who are handling the affairs of the city, lost a beloved 
friend yesterday in the death of Miss Ann Elizabeth Winchell, 
thirty-eight years a teacher in the city's public schools. 

"In those years the kindly teacher, who some times served 
as family adviser and even as nurse to her charges, saw the 
city destroyed by the great fire and saw much of the business 
district rebuilt under the personal direction of her 'children.' 

"Suffers Over Six Years. 
' ' Miss Winchell died shortly after noon yesterday of paraly- 



SEVENTH GENERATION 265 

sis, from which she had been suffering more than six years. 
Death came in the pretty little home in Norwood Park, where 
the Winchells have lived since 1872. Funeral services will be 
held there to-morrow afternoon, after which the body will be 
taken to Northfield, 111., for interment. 

"Miss Winchell and her sister, Miss Harriet N. Winchell, 
had the proud distinction of being two of the oldest, if not the 
oldest, school-teachers in Chicago. The former came to Chi- 
cago when only 2 years old from the Winchell homestead in 
New York, where she was born in 1834. When the Chicago 
Normal School was opened in 1857 she was one of the first to 
enroll as a pupil. Likewise, she was in the first graduating class 
that received diplomas in 1859. 

"It was but a few days later that she was assigned to teach 
in 'one of the outlying schools,' a branch of the old Jones 
School at Twelfth Street and Michigan Avenue. To reach the 
school it was necessary to 'drive out,' as the locality, now the 
center of the automobile row, was considered the farthermost 
corner of Chicago's outskirts then. 

"Faithful Work Rewarded. 

"A year later the school officials recognized Miss Winchell 's 
faithful service and rewarded it by making her a head assistant 
at the Foster School on the West Side. 

"Miss Winchell served in that capacity nearly five years, 
when she was transferred to the historic old Scammon School, 
which occupied the present site of John M. Smyth's store on 
West Madison Street. While teaching in the Scammon School 
Miss Winchell had as her pupils children who later became Chi- 
cago 's most prominent citizens. Among them were Dr. William 
T. Belfield, Dr. Theodore Roberg, former Judge Lineberger, 
James A. Petersen and Lynden Bates. Lucia Ames Mead of 
Boston, who is prominently associated with the international 
peace movement, also was her pupil, as was the late John Bal- 
lantyne. 

"The stroke of paralysis which yesterday proved fatal com- 
pelled Miss Winchell to cease teaching in 1897. She was able 
to be out of her home for brief periods after the first stroke, 
but never recovered her health." 

The same newspaper, Feb. 4, 1910, had given a similar sketch 
of the life of the younger teacher, viz. : 



266 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

"Harriet N. Winchell has been principal of the Samuel J. 
Tilden School at West Lake and Elizabeth Streets for twenty- 
four years. She is still there. Her sister Ann's teaching ca- 
reer began in 1859 and continued until 1897, when she suffered 
a stroke of paralysis and was compelled to retire. Both live to- 
gether in a pretty home in Norwood Park. 

"In the years that Miss Harriet has been connected with 
the Tilden School she has seen the district degenerate from a 
fashionable one to one in which the families of the poor pre- 
dominate. In the early days she had as her pupils Richard T. 
Crane, Jr., Charles R. Crane, C. K. G. Billings, his wife, who 
was Miss Blanch McLeish, Lillian Russell, and Beatrice Mac- 
Kenzie, the actresses, and other persons now well known. Until 
his death ' Tad ' Lincoln was one of her boys. 

"To-day the whole district about the school has changed. 
The wealthy families have moved away and their places have 
been taken by the cosmopolitan population that goes to make up 
a factory district. Yet through all this Miss Winchell 's love 
for the old school has not changed. Repeatedly influential 
friends have sought to induce her to take up school work in a 
more aristocratic section, but to all these friends she replies: 

" 'No, I like my work here and I shall stay. The district 
has changed, it is true, but so have my ideals. I feel that I 
can do more good here than I could anywhere else. ' 

" 'Time has created entirely new demands on the principal 
in this school,' said Miss Winchell yesterday, as she watched 
her pupils pouring pell-mell out of the building into the streets. 
'In the old days I was merely a teacher, for my pupils had the 
best of home influences and needed none of the preliminary 
training that the offspring of the very poor do. Now I am 
teacher, nurse and family adviser. My responsibilities have 
enlarged. I am a much more important figure in this commun- 
ity than I was twenty years ago. My deliberate choice is to 
remain always in the Tilden School, for there is a work doing 
here that is vital to the future of Chicago.' 

"Since she was 19 years old Miss Winchell has been a 
school-teacher. After she had graduated in 1864 in the Chi- 
cago Normal School her first appointment was to the Newberry 
School, in charge of the first grade. A month later she was 
transferred to the Washington School, and in 1867 was as- 
signed as head teacher to the Elizabeth Street Primary School,

then occupying the site of the Tilden School. Two years later 
she was made principal. 

"When, eighteen years ago, Richard T. Crane volunteered 
to equip a workshop in the Tilden School for the practical 
education of seventh and eighth grade boys, that building be- 
came the experiment station of the Chicago public schools. And 
there, under Miss Winchell, industrial training had its incep- 
tion. Four years later the board of education took hold of the 
plan and extended manual training to other schools. Miss 
Winchell's school to-day is the only school in which girls are 
instructed both in sewing and cooking, a fact accountable also 
by Crane's interest in this kind of practical education. 

" 'The unstable social conditions of the locality form the 
only drawback to our efforts to teach boys and girls how to use 
their hands, ' said Miss Winchell. ' There are many reasons why 
their attendance is not regular. 

" * There seems never to have been a time when the effi- 
ciency of public school education has been considered more se- 
riously than now. The value of industrial training is acknowl- 
edged by all educators. Home training and social conditions 
have changed. Schools must do what the home has failed to 
do for the protection of future government.' " 

In 1916, 2607 Harriet retired as principal of the Tilden 
School after a continuous school service of 51 years. Shortly 
afterward she died suddenly of heart failure on April 19, 1916. 
She was then vice-president of the Principals' Association of 
Chicago. Her portrait is given herewith.

two years, he removed from Dubuque to a farm 25 miles distant, 
with the view of rendering the assistance of his large family 
more available. This region was then an almost unbroken wilder- 
ness; and the children were necessarily deprived of many 
educational and social privileges. They were, however, trained 
by faithful parents, in habits of honesty and industry. After 
ten years, the care of this family was devolved upon the widow, 
who most nobly discharged her important trust.

Lies never a cloud or a shadow, 



318 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

And my heart in its quiet trust is at rest, 
Since whatever cometh — 'He knoweth best.' 

"0, I envy the dead in their narrow bed, 
For they hear no sound of weeping; 
And no grief can come in that long, long home, 

"Where they're gently, quietly sleeping. 
For the world is dark, and my heart is lone, 
Friendship is dead and Hope has flown! 

"Thus ever along life's pathway 
We mingle pleasure with pain, 
And the sun in its silvery brightness 
Is hidden by the rain. ' '

2148 Rensselaer, removing to the wilderness of Missouri with 
his father, in 1837-8, spent some time in clearing up the land, but,

tered Marion College, Mo., with superior preparation, but, after 
one year, removed to Illinois College, at Jacksonville, where he 
graduated as valedictorian, 25 June, 1845. Spending two years 
in the Theological Seminary at Andover, Mass., he was called 
to serve his Alma Mater as Tutor in Greek and Latin — occupy- 
ing the position of a professor. Here his health began to give 
way under too severe mental labor, and his last year at Andover 
was spent under less favorable circumstances than his first. 
He graduated there, however, 5 Sept., 1849. For five years he 



334 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

struggled with failing health, in the labors of the ministry, 
preaching at Tully, Mo., in 1850, and in southern Iowa, in 1852 ; 
but finally was compelled to desist. He left Iowa in Nov., 1853, 
and has since resided in Boston, seeking such employment as 
would best comport with his feeble health. His wife, married 
in Illinois, was one of "Gov. Slade's Teachers," so called. His 
estimation of her is shown from the fact that he considers the 
following passage, struck upon in a trial of the "Virgilian 
Sortes," in his first year at college, as providentially pointing 
her out: 

Ad terrain Hesperiam venies, ubi Lydius arva 
Inter opima virum leni fluit agmine Tybris. 
Illic res laetse, regnumque, et regia conjux 
Parta tibi. [JEneid II.: 731-4.] 

He wrote (Apr., 1897) : "My next birthday will record me 
80. My hand does not tremble, and I am well and hearty, hav- 
ing no pains or aches; and I go up and down stairs about as 
well as I ever did." All this in spite of early feeble health, as 
mentioned. He knows a great many Winchells and is cordial 
and interested. Address, Dryads Green, Northampton, Mass.

Oakland in 1889. In the summer of 1900 she ascended Mount 
Goddard, 14,600 feet above sea level, with her brother and others, 
being the second white woman to reach the peak. In 1902 she 
became music and dramatic critic for the San Francisco Dramatic 
Beview and also pipe organist at Howard Methodist Church; in 
1904 she joined the staff of the San Francisco Call as assistant 
society editor. 

April 18th, 1906, a large part of San Francisco was shaken 
into chaos, to be consumed by fire. The editor in her night-

clothes, — wrapped in a bed-quilt hastily caught up, — fled from the 
fourth story of the Hotel Argyle, 234 McAllister Street, just escap- 
ing being crushed by a heavy brick cornice that fell and piled 
the sidewalk with debris. Directly opposite, the ponderous col- 
umns and massive walls of the City Hall were crashing into Mc- 
Allister Street, and the four stories of the Supreme Court Build- 
ing on the corner of Larkin, were hurled across that street to 
the farther sidewalk. 

Eunning to the center of these cross-streets as the only place 
of safety, she stood until the air was free of flying missiles, and 
the earth was firm below, — when friends brought her some pro- 
miscuous articles of attire, with which, in a deserted saloon, she 
made her morning toilet. Abandoning the tottering hotel with 
her furniture, piano, music, pictures, books, valuables and memen- 
toes, and saving only a music-book and pair of shoes, she hurried 
to rejoin the affrighted ladies of the "Argyle," waiting in dis- 
heveled robes at a safer spot, corner of Larkin Street and Golden 
Gate Avenue. In a vacated shanty, recently an Italian restaurant, 
they had dry bread and coffee for breakfast. 

Towering columns of black smoke and red flashes of fire were 
already bursting forth, fed by volumes of gas pouring from broken 
pipes, — heralding the doom of the shattered city. 

The group of forlorn ladies, each with a handful of belong- 
ings, were soon seated on the bottom of a rough lumber-wagon 
provided by a Standard Oil manager, and hauled to the Golden 
Gate Park, two miles distant, where they found refuge for three 
days in a U. S. Army tent. The ocean of fire that swept the city 
for three days and nights, destroyed all the family property else- 
where, leaving her only the misfit raiment in which she was at- 
tired, and her music-book. 

After temporarily resuming work on the Call, she accepted 
a position on the staff of the San Francisco Chronicle, in 1906, 
and took charge of the "Army and Navy" Department, the 
"Belief Corporation" of the "Eed Cross" funds, and general 
assignments. 

From the age of five to eleven, 2151 Elisha attended the 
public schools of West Springfield, Mass. On the 13th day of 
Nov., 1833, at two o'clock in the morning, he witnessed the 
appalling storm of many-colored fires that, for two hours, filled 
the eastern heavens; the first meteoric shower recorded in the 
western hemisphere. 

His father lost most of his property in 1837 and the family 
set forth overland for the wild domains beyond the Mississippi 
River. 

Traversing western Massachusetts, New York, Michigan, In- 
diana, Illinois, crossing Lake Erie by steamer from Buffalo to 
Detroit, they reached Quincy, 111., on the Mississippi, 9 Aug.,

EIGHTH GENERATION 337 

1837. There were no railroads except from Albany to Schenec- 
tady, 16 miles, and from Niagara to Buffalo, 22 miles. In 
January, 1838, they crossed the Mississippi with wagons over the 
upturned and refrozen icebergs, and took refuge in a log cabin 
by a marsh near the swampy hamlet, Marion City, Mo., on the 
west bank of the river. 

In Apr., 1838, they journeyed thirty miles west, and on the 
18th, made a new home on a lonely prairie, in a new log cabin 
without door, floor, window or chimney. Two miles away dwelt 
their only neighbor. There were no towns, villages, churches, 
schools, nor post-offices, no flour mills, sawmills, lumber, brick 
nor lime in this land of deer, wild turkeys, prairie hens, quails, 
rabbits, hares, wolves, wild cats, badgers, opossums, rattlesnakes 
and wild honey-bees. 

The merchant-manufacturer of mid-New England, with his 
young sons, — novices to the wilderness, — most courageously 
aided by the devoted wife and young daughters, — now faced 
the task of carving a new home out of the solitudes. Forest 
trees were wrought into rails, wide fields enclosed, grains and 
vegetables planted, orchards set, cattle and swine reared, wild 
bees captured, their treasures confiscated and new hives set up, 
while herds of kine supplied generous treasures of the dairy. 

A limestone ledge gave lime for a chimney, and the sombre- 
walled cabin became an alabaster cottage. At last, abundance, 
prosperity and happiness rewarded the courage and toils of the 
refugees. All of which, 2151 Elisha beheld, — in much of which 
he participated. 

The mother and the daughters of fifteen and seventeen 
taught the boys of five, eight and twelve, who afterwards be- 
came teachers in the wide-scattered, log school-houses in the 
endless forests. The daughters subsequently taught in the 
principal schools in Palmyra. 

Once a week the mails were brought on horseback to the 
lonely cottage, which became, in Sept., 1838, the "West Spring- 
field" post office. 

After a term at Marion College, in Marion County, 2151 
Elisha entered as a law student the law office of Messrs. An- 
derson and Dryden, his brothers-in-law, at Palmyra; and, in 
June, 1848, was admitted to the bar. In November following, 
he opened a law office in Paris, Monroe County, forty miles 
west, but on Apr. 11, 1850, with three other young men, he set 



338 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

out with a wagon and six horses, to cross the continent to dig 
gold in California. 

Floundering through the black prairie mud of Missouri for 
four weeks, they reached, May 10th, the city of St. Joseph, on 
the Missouri Eiver, the "ultima thule" of civilization. On the 
17th they crossed to the west bank on a mud-scow rowed by 
oars, landing in a camp of Kickapoo Indians. 

The next day they joined an endless caravan of white-topped 
wagons, horses, mules and oxen and launched out on a lonely 
waste of two thousand miles inhabited only by savage Indians. 
Following the turbid Nebraska and bright Sweet Water Rivers, 
they crossed, June 25th, the "roof of the continent," the Rocky 
Mountains, by the south pass, at an altitude of 7490 feet, whence 
they plunged into the silent expanse of waterless, yellow deserts 
that lie between that chain and the Snow Mountains of Cali- 
fornia. 

July 27th, at the Humboldt River, 600 miles from Sutter's 
Fort (Sacramento), their provisions nearly exhausted, and their 
animals unable, from starvation, to haul their wagon, they cut 
out its spokes and sides to make pack-saddles. Then, abandon- 
ing everything except their arms, a little food and their blankets, 
they took their way down the Humboldt Valley, a hideous desert, 
which, for three hundred miles, was strewed with dead and dy- 
ing animals. The river was a ' ' Styx ' ' of polluted, alkali water, 
unfit for man or beast. Four of their horses died and the party 
scattered. During the night of August 11th and the forenoon 
of the 12th, 2151 Elisha led his staggering horses through 
scenes of death and desolation, over the arid sands of the 40- 
mile Humboldt Desert, to the ice-fed waters of the Carson River. 
Following that stream southward for eighty miles, he entered, 
August 25th, the "Carson Canon," a cleft in the granite wall 
opening into the Snow Mountains, beyond which lay the gold 
of California. August 26th, he crossed the territorial line of 
California, two weeks prior to its admission as a state into the 
Federal Union. Abandoning here, on a grassy meadow, his help- 
less animals and shouldering a 30-pound pack of law-books, bis- 
cuit and bacon, he slowly approached the granite ledges and 
snow-fields of the Californian chain, which, three days later, 
he surmounted and crossed at 9338 feet, and at once began the 
rough descent to the Pacific Ocean. 

At dark of Aug. 31, 1850, no roof at hand, he made his 
leafy couch under a low-branching tree, sleeping soundly until 



EIGHTH GENERATION 339 

the frost, at dawn, awakened him. Before him was his last 
day's journey. Sutter's Fort (Sacramento) was forty miles dis- 
tant. At sunrise, by a brook, he breakfasted on two ship's 
crackers with ice-cold water. At sunset, half-starved, but in 
robust health, in tatters and wholly penniless, but in high spirits, 
he entered the mush-room city of cloth and clapboards — Sacra- 
mento — half-hidden in the willow thickets by the river, thus 
happily ending his pilgrimage of 142 days from Paris. One 
week later, his three companions arrived in similar plight. Two 
years afterward, they had all vanished from earthly scenes. 
He, only, of the four, survived. 

The first of the Winchell family, so far as is known, to set 
foot on California soil, he has never left its confines. [Note 
1109 Horace was in California as one of the "forty-niners" but 
returned in 1850. N. H. W.] He came to dig gold, scorning 
all other occupations. But the eager "49-ers" had scraped 
bare the surface "placers." To work the deep, gold-bearing 
ledges required capital and machinery, which he had not. 

In Jan., 1851, he opened a law-office in Sacramento and in 
1852 was elected a Justice of the Peace, with an annual salary 
of $5000. In 1855 he was elected City Assessor of Sacramento. 
In 1857 a frenzied rush of Californians to British Columbia 
gold mines paralyzed, for the time, all business ; and, closing his 
office, he took charge, for 18 months, of a large cattle and dairy 
ranch in Solano County. 

In July, 1859, with his wife and infant son, he removed to 
Millerton, county seat of Fresno County, a newly-opened re- 
gion of mining and agricultural wealth, 250 miles southeast of 
Sacramento. He resumed the practice of law, and, in 1860, be- 
ing appointed superintendent of public schools, he organized 
the first public schools in the county. The same year, he was 
appointed commissioner to survey the boundary line between 
Fresno and Mariposa Counties, through one of the most rugged 
sections of the Sierras. 

In Sept., 1860, as a candidate against three opponents for 
the state legislature, he canvassed, on horseback, the counties 
of Fresno, Tulare and Kern, — as large as all New England, — 
but was defeated by a small vote. In 1861 he was elected 
district attorney, and in 1863 county judge. In 1862 he orga- 
nized a company to explore the gold deposits in an ancient river 
bed under "Table Mountain," covered by 200 feet of Plutonian 
outflows. After the tunnel had reached the old channel, an ava- 



340 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

lanche of basaltic lava buried and destroyed the works and 
terminated the enterprise. In 1863, he formed a company to 
develop a copper mine on the Chowchilla River, thirty miles 
north from Millerton, which, after fluctuating prosperity, was 
sold for a large sum to eastern capitalists. 

In 1874 the county seat was transferred from Millerton, in 
the foothills, to a new railroad " siding, " called ''Fresno/' 25 
miles distant, in the uninhabited desert of the San Joaquin 
Valley. In that solitary hamlet, now (1915) a busy city of forty 
thousand inhabitants, he opened, in May, 1874, the first law 
office. In October he brought his family, and Fresno continued 
to be their home for twenty-two years. 

The San Joaquin Valley, rich as the Nile delta, baked by a 
cloudless sun from April to October, was worthless for farming 
without irrigation. In 1880 he organized a corporation which, 
by damming a large mountain stream, King's River, twenty 
miles distant, brought out, by a large canal, one thousand cubic 
feet of water per second, which irrigated, through lateral canals, 
150,000 acres of this Sahara, transforming it into a garden of 
tropical luxuriance and abounding wealth. This was among the 
first of the irrigating canals constructed in the United States, 
except at Salt Lake City, and the second of those in the San 
Joaquin Valley. 

Riparian owners of Spanish grants, chiefly cattle-raisers, 
opposed the irrigation system, and years of litigation followed, 
during which 2151 Elisha defended in the courts the rights of 
the farmers, with the result that final decrees of the courts 
have left the irrigators in the enjoyment of the free use of the 
water. 

In 1887 he erected in Fresno, at a cost of $45,000 for lot 
and building, a two-story brick structure and furnished the 
lower half of it as a United States post office, the use of which 
he gave to the government and to the people of Fresno free 
of rent for five years. He also erected in Fresno other buildings 
for commercial purposes, of the value, with the land, of $120,000. 

In 1894-5, with his eldest son, L. A. Winchell, he engaged 
in manufacturing and shipping lumber from the mountains to 
Fresno, but the widespread financial revulsions suspended the 
enterprise. 

The serious condition of his wife's health now required her 
removal to the cool climate of the coast. Disposing of the 
Fresno interests, he moved his family first to Oakland and, in 



EIGHTH GENERATION 341 

1900, to San Francisco, where his wife died, 17 Nov., 1908. In 
June, 1909, he moved to Berkeley, the seat of the state university 
where, having retired from business activities, he lived till his 
death in 1913.

working a farm until 1850, when he entered the printing office 
of Jacob Losey, Palmyra, Mo., and learned the business in the 
brief space of two years, "graduating" in 1852. Returning to 
the farm, he remained until the spring of 1853, when he went 
to Jacksonville, 111., and worked as journeyman till Oct., 1853. 
Health failing, returned to Palmyra and entered his father's 
real estate office. On the death of his father, in 1856, assumed 
the entire management of the "North Missouri Land Agency," 
which still remains (1869) under his charge. In 1860, bought 
a half interest in the Palmyra Courier, assuming the editorial 
management. In 1861 bought the other half interest and con- 
tinued the publication of the paper — thoroughly loyal, and true 
to the Union — till Feb., 1863, when the Courier was united with 
the Hannibal Messenger, and assumed the name of the "North 
Missouri Courier." 

He made many enemies in Missouri by his staunch patriot- 
ism at the time of the Civil War. They sought his life. Guer- 
rillas surrounded his house and searched it. He stood up be- 
hind the clothes that hung on the wall of a small hall-room. 
They searched the room twice but failed to find him. Another 
man caught at the same time was killed. He continued to pub- 
lish the Daily and Weekly Courier, which increased in circu- 
lation and influence; and as a Republican paper ranked next, 
in the state, to the St. Louis Democrat; it was published by the 
firm, "Winchell, Ebert and March," whose business increased 
rapidly in 1867-1870. He was for some time in the United 
States customs service as deputy collector and collector. At

Born Avon, Livingston Co., N. Y., 4 Feb., 1824; m. Eliza-

Earll, Syracuse. She was b. Onondaga Hill, N. Y., 16 Dec,

retired from active business and bought the estate at Hyde

3693 Clarence Earll, b. Syracuse, 5 Aug., 1852; d. New York, 1 Apr., 

1854. 

2162 James had a remarkably busy and diversified life. His 
father, Rev. Reuben Winchell, supervised his education, and 
gave his son the instruction he could not obtain at the district 
school. In 1846, having determined to become a professional 
teacher, he obtained admission to the State Normal School at 
Albany. Two years later he was graduated, and became a 
teacher in the public schools of Syracuse. While in that position 
he was connected with several journalistic enterprises, and he 
bought a small farm in the vicinity of Syracuse. This he sold 
in 1854 and removed to Kansas, where for more than ten years 
he was in the midst of the political disturbances which marked 
the period introductory to the Civil War. He was a witness of 
the incursion of armed Missourians in 1855, and for some time 
he was instrumental in averting bloodshed and in bringing about 
a "treaty" by the terms of which the Missourians dispersed. 
In the spring of 1856, after the raid of Buford and Atchison, 
he was appointed by the citizens of Lawrence to memorialize 
the president on the outrages, which he did ; and the same year 
he was appointed a delegate to the first national Republican 
convention at Philadelphia, which nominated Gen. Fremont for 
the presidency. The same year he was instrumental in having a 
supply of firearms sent from Iowa City to Council City, Kansas, 
for the use of the citizens in repelling future raids from Mis- 
souri. At the Republican convention he was a member of the 
committee on platform and resolutions. He was a member also 
of the Kansas "central committee" chosen for the purpose of 



344 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

relief and defense. He was one of the party who established the 
town of Wyandot, Kansas, where he participated actively in 
current politics, during the exciting times of 1857 and 1858. 
He was a member of the constitutional convention which met 
at Leavenworth in 1858 where he was chairman of the committee 
to memorialize congress and present the constitution, and in 1859 
was president of a like convention held at Wyandot. He here 
took an active part in framing the instrument which became the 
organic law of the State in its admission to the Union, and was 
chairman of the committee on nominations in the convention 
which nominated the first state officers. During 1860 and 1861 
he was a member of the Territorial Legislature. On the ad- 
mission of Kansas into the Union, under the Wyandot constitu- 
tion, he became the representative of the New York Times, and 
followed the role of a newspaper correspondent during the con- 
tinuance of the Civil War. He was at Cairo during the spring of 
1861 ; followed the fortunes of Gen. Lyon in the Missouri Valley ; 
was in West Virginia with Gens. McClellan and Rosecrans for a 
short time; and the following winter went for a few weeks to 
Kansas for the purpose of joining Lane's famous projected ex- 
pedition to the Gulf. On the abandonment of that brilliant 
fantasy, he joined the expedition of Gen. Hunter to Port Royal, 
where he remained till after the capitulation of Fort Pulaski. 
He now purposed to abandon the business of war correspondent, 
but was induced to spend the autumn of 1862 at Washington 
editor of the Times, with the view of reorganizing that bureau, 
which had fallen into a condition of great inefficiency. He 
had intended, as a citizen of Kansas, to devote himself during 
the ensuing winter to the interests of the Kansas branch of the 
Pacific R. R., but was finally constrained to remain in Wash- 
ington till the close of the session of Congress, March 4, 1863. 
He now took up his residence in New York and closely identified 
himself with the negotiations which resulted in the purchase of 
the franchise of the Kansas Pacific Railroad, by Samuel Hal- 
lett and Gen. Fremont, and the commencement of the construc- 
tion of the road at Wyandot. While in Lawrence, on the 21st 
of August, in connection with this business, he witnessed, for 
the third time, the hostile approach of the enemies of free state 
principles, which, on this occasion, resulted in the massacre of a 
hundred and fifty of its defenseless citizens by the guerrilla 
Quantrell. 



EIGHTH GENERATION 345 

The following winter he was much in Washington on busi- 
ness of the Pacific R. R. Companies, and was naturally drawn 
into politics again. The reasons which actuated a large body of 
respectable politicians to look to Secretary Chase as a successor 
to President Lincoln, induced him to identify himself with the 
movement ; and he became Secretary of the Chase National Com- 
mittee, and as such, prepared the somewhat noted Chase-Pome- 
roy Circular issued by that Committee, which contained a severe 
indictment of the conservative war policy of Mr. Lincoln. 

The assassination of Samuel Hallett in the summer of 1864 
changed his relations to the Pacific Railway enterprises; and 
the following years, till the fall of 1867, he devoted to the or- 
ganization of several mining companies, which met with various 
degrees of success and failure. At that time he resolved to re- 
tire again to the country, and gratify his tastes and recruit his 
health in the pursuits of agriculture. He purchased property 
at Hyde Park, on the Hudson River, where he continued to re- 
side till his death in 1879, at the age of 53 years.

Brief Sketch of 2374 Alexander. 

The writer is impressed by three controlling facts, in attempt- 
ing to write a sketch of his eldest brother. First, the propriety 
and the need of a sufficient account of his life and work ; second, 
the impossibility of getting such appropriate sketch into the 
limits to which a genealogical sketch should be restricted in a 
work of this character, and third, the impelling motive of 
fraternal love and pride. 

There is no doubt that among the thousand? in America who 
have been born to the surname Winchell none has shed greater 
luster upon it than Alexander, and this remark can be extended 
truthfully to the family that remain in Europe. On account of 
the multiplicity and variety of his professional labors but little

more can be done here than to enumerate some of the principal 
events and achievements which resulted directly from his activ- 
ity, referring the reader who desires more detail and other appre- 
ciative estimates to those formal biographic sketches which have 
been published elsewhere, and especially to "An Editorial 
Tribute," published in the American Geologist, February, 1892 
(Vol. IX) ; "Memorial Sketch and Eulogium," in the Bulletin 
of the Geological Society of America, Vol. Ill, 1891; "Funeral 
Oration" of Dr. Wm. S. Studley, with remarks at a special 
memorial service in the Methodist Church at Ann Arbor, Mich. ; 
"Alexander Winchell, " in Review of Reviews, May, 1892; The 
University Herald, Syracuse, N. Y., "Dr. Alexander Winchell, 
a Man but Half Understood," Nov., 1898, and Popular Science 
Monthly, October, 1892, pp. 837-843. 

Of these that of the Popular Science Monthly is most con- 
densed and is reproduced herewith. 

"While he was industrious and versatile as an original in- 
vestigator, Prof. Alexander Winchell was best known as a suc- 
cessful, instructive, and entertaining lecturer on subjects of 
science, especially of geology and evolution, and as the author of 
numerous books which have found their way into the house- 
holds of our country, describing in a style interesting and com- 
prehensible to all the latest results of research and of his own 
labors in those fields. 

"Alexander Winchell was born in Northeast, Duchess 
County, N. Y., December 31, 1824, and died in Ann Arbor, 
Mich., February 19, 1891. His family were in moderately com- 
fortable circumstances. His father and mother had been teach- 
ers in the public schools of the town. He showed a taste for 
mathematics at an early age, which was illustrated by his having 
completed the first part of Emerson 's arithmetic and his reciting 
the entire multiplication table without mistake on the day he was 
seven years old. When a little more than ten years old he had 
completed Willett's arithmetic, and had transcribed all the defi- 
nitions, rules, problems, and full solutions in a manuscript book. 
He attended the Stockbridge Academy and the village school. 
It had been intended that he should study medicine, but on his 
expressing, when sixteen years old, a desire to teach, his father 
engaged a district school in which he taught during the winter 
of 1840 and 1841. As by-pursuits he collected and solved arith- 
metical problems, and began the practices, which he never dis- 
continued, of recording the results of his reading and study, and 



364 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

keeping a diary and a strict account of expenditures. He con- 
tinued his mathematical studies, soon acquired an enlarged idea 
of the preparation needed to fit him to become a doctor, became 
more attached to the profession of teacher, and had ' his imagina- 
tion fired' by the study of astronomy. In 1843 he became assist- 
ant in Amenia Seminary, where he had attended for a year as a 
student. Having entered Wesley an University in 1844 as a 
sophomore, 'he encountered with indignation,' says his editorial 
biographer in the American Geologist, 'the first check in his 
educational ardor and success in a rigorous "marking system," 
which at that time laid special stress on the literal reproduction 
of the words of the text-books. Though ambitious for honors, 
he refused to compete for them under those conditions. Having 
been graduated in 1847, he was appointed teacher of natural 
science in Pennington Male Seminary, New Jersey, when he 
entered with irrepressible zeal and delight upon the study of the 
flora of the vicinity. The Morse telegraph having just come 
into operation, he attempted with success, and with no special 
knowledge beyond the fundamental principles, the production of 
a working instrument, which he exhibited at a public lecture. 

1 ' His ambition was now extending beyond mathematics. De- 
clining offers of a tutorship in that science in Wesleyan Univer- 
sity and of continued position in Pennington Seminary, he ac- 
cepted the chair of Natural Science in Amenia Seminary. Here 
he gave his first public geological lectures ; explored the flora of 
the vicinity, of which he contributed a catalogue to the regents 
of the university; observed solar spots; and began a series of 
meteorological observations. 

"He removed in 1850 to take charge of an academy at New- 
bern, Ala. Finding the prospects of the institution not equal 
to his expectations, he undertook to revive a suspended institu- 
tion at Eutaw in the same county. Here he began a course of 
scientific investigations which he had been indefinitely projecting 
for some time. He communicated to the American Journal of 
Science notes on the cold of January at Eutaw, and on the 
aurora borealis of September 29, 1851 ; opened a correspondence 
with the Smithsonian Institution, to which he sent collections 
of plants, alcoholic specimens, and preserved skins, including the 
new species of fish, Hybopsis Winchelli; and communicated to 
the American Association in 1853 the first scientific description 
of the Cretaceous Choctaw Bluff, on the Black Warrior River. 



EIGHTH GENERATION 365 

In 1853 Prof. Winchell became President of the Masonic Univer- 
sity, Selma, Ala., and made a tour of the southern part of the 
State, to interest the people in the institution. The tour was 
also a geological one, and took him through a country rich in 
Cretaceous and Tertiary fossils, where Hippurites encumbered 
the ground and were burned into lime, and the 'precious verte- 
brae' of Zeuglodon were used for andirons, stiles, and gate- 
weights. He sent a collection of fishes to the Smithsonian Insti- 
tution, in acknowledging which Prof. Baird predicted that in 
not many years he would be called to a big professorship some- 
where North or East. 'Nine days after these words were 
penned,' says his biographer in the American Geologist, 'he was 
elected to a chair in the University of Michigan. ' This was in 
1853 ; the professorship was that of Physics and Civil Engineer- 
ing. He found on taking his chair, in January, 1854, that no 
good elementary text-books on civil engineering were in exist- 
ence, and that he had to originate matter and methods. As a 
branch of physics he attended to the keeping of a complete series 
of meteorological observations, which, while he held the chair, 
he reported to the Smithsonian Institution. In the next year he 
was transferred, in accordance with an understanding that was 
had when he first went to the university, to the newly created 
chair of Geology, Zoology, and Botany. In a paper On the Im- 
portance of the Study of Natural History, read before the State 
Teachers' Association in 1856, he advocated the introduction of 
that subject into the Union schools and the lower classes of the 
colleges. In the fall of 1857 he opened a class in comparative 
osteology. A geological survey of the State of Michigan having 
been ordered, he was commissioned as its director, and began, 
in 1859, with one assistant, the examination of the southern part 
of the lower peninsula. He fixed the position of the salt waters 
of East Saginaw to within two feet of their actual level, and in 
his report, published in August, 1861, fully anticipated the vast 
development of the salt interest in the Saginaw Valley. The 
official survey was suspended by the breaking out of the Civil 
War, but the paleontological investigations were carried on pri- 
vately. Prof. Winchell pointed out the gypsum bed near Tawas, 
which had been pronounced barren, but has proved marvelously 
rich; studied the 'Marshall group' and its relations with the 
Chemung ; investigated the cherry slug and currant worm ; pub- 
lished numerous geological papers and an address on the soils 



366 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

and subsoils of Michigan, in which he insisted on the agricul- 
tural value of the pine lands ; studied the oil-producing regions 
of the United States and Canada; and published a report on 
the Grand Traverse region, and a paper on the fruit-bearing belt 
of Michigan, in which attention was first called to the influence 
of Lake Michigan in ameliorating the climate of the State and 
prolonging the growing period. The Geological Survey of Mich- 
igan was reorganized in 1869, and Prof. Winchell was again 
appointed its director. He had learned much during the interval 
since the survey was suspended, as our enumeration shows, in 
his private travels for economical surveys, of the rock structure 
and physical features of the State. In 1871 he had prepared a 
preliminary report ; but hostile political and personal influences 
had been working against him, and the appropriation for print- 
ing the report failed to pass the Legislature. He resigned his 
position, and the report, embodying the results of two seasons of 
field work in the lower peninsula, largely remains unpublished. 
A part of the material intended for it was condensed for Wall- 
ing 's Atlas of Michigan, and these memoirs were afterward col- 
lected in a volume, accompanied by topographical, geological, 
and isothermal charts. 

"In 1873 Prof. Winchell was called to the position of Chan- 
cellor of Syracuse University. He held it only for about one 
year, when the anticipated financial resources of the institution 
having shrunken considerably in the actuality, and he having 
been asked to take part in public efforts to augment the endow- 
ment, he resigned it. He had been told that the authorities of the 
institution had been attracted to him by his scientific reputation, 
and that they wished him not to discontinue his pursuits in that 
line. He had, however, already found the presidency interfer- 
ing with his scientific work, and the additional burden was too 
much. 'For the duties of solicitor of money,' says his biogra- 
pher, 'he had no qualifications. Between paleontologist and 
financial agent was a gap so broad that he had never contem- 
plated crossing it.' He, however, in December, 1874, accepted 
the chair of Geology in the same university. For this depart- 
ment he prepared an extended syllabus of a proposed course of 
geological lectures, which should possess interest for the general 
public, but found it difficult in the financial condition of the 
institution to equip and maintain laboratories corresponding 
with his ideas of the professorship of Geology. While occupied 



EIGHTH GENERATION 367 

with this problem, he was invited to become Professor of Geol- 
ogy, Zoology, and Botany, in Vanderbilt University, Nashville, 
Tenn. He accepted an engagement for three months, without 
severing his connection with Syracuse University, for he opened 
there a School of Geology, in January, 1876, which he wished 
to make a permanent feature of the institution ; but the enter- 
prise was not fully successful till 1878. He divided his time 
between Syracuse and Vanderbilt Universities. He found the 
authorities of the latter institution attached to the old ideas, and 
in no way disposed to give ear to the new theories of evolution. 
He nevertheless began his course under what might be consid- 
ered favorable auspices. In 1877 he published a theory of a 
relation of meteorites to the disturbances of the satellites of 
Mars, and several papers in strictly orthodox books and news- 
papers, unfolding his theory of Preadamites, or of the existence 
of races of men before Adam ; which, he held, was not contrary 
to divine revelation, but was authorized by a proper construction 
of the Scriptures. His views were kindly received, even when 
they were not believed, in the North, but were very unwelcome to 
his Southern friends. At the commencement season of Vander- 
bilt University of 1878, Prof. Winchell w T as w T arned that his 
'heterodox' position in reference to Preadamites and evolution 
was having an influence adverse to the interests of the university, 
and was asked to decline a reappointment to his professorship. 
He refused to do this on such grounds as were alleged. On the 
same evening he delivered one of the addresses of the commence- 
ment occasion ; and on the next morning the Board of Trust of 
the university abolished his chair. It had been intended to have 
the thing quietly done, but Prof. Winchell published all the 
facts, and was not the one who suffered in reputation from the 
transaction. Of this incident, Dr. Andrew D. White says, in his 
New Chapters in the Warfare of Science: 'That his lectures at 
the Vanderbilt University were learned, attractive, and stimulat- 
ing, even his enemies were forced to admit; but he was soon 
found to believe that there had been men earlier than the period 
of Adam, and even that all the human race are not descended 
from Adam. His effort in this was to reconcile science and 
Scripture, and he was now treated by a Methodist Episcopal 
bishop in Tennessee just as, two centuries before, La Peyrere 
had been treated for a similar offense by a Roman Catholic vicar- 
general in Belgium. The publication of a series of articles on 



368 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

the subject, contributed by the professor to a Northern religious 
newspaper, at its own request, brought matters to a climax, for, 
the articles having fallen under the notice of the leading South- 
western organ of the denomination controlling the Vanderbilt 
University, the result was a most bitter denunciation of Prof. 
Winchell and of his views. Shortly afterward the professor was 
told by Bishop McTyeire that "our people believe that such 
views are contrary to the plan of redemption, ' ' and was re- 
quested by the bishop to quietly resign his chair. To this the 
professor made the fitting reply: "If the Board of Trustees 
have the manliness to dismiss me for cause, and declare the 
cause, I prefer that they should do it; no power on earth could 
persuade me to decline." "We do not propose," said the 
bishop, with gratuitous suggestiveness, "to treat you as the In- 
quisition treated Galileo." "But what you propose is the same 
thing," rejoined Dr. Winchell. "It is ecclesiastical proscription 
for an opinion which must be settled by scientific evidence." 
Twenty-four hours later Dr. Winchell was informed that his 
chair had been abolished, and its duties, with its salary, added 
to those of a colleague ; the public were given to understand that 
the reasons were purely economic; the banished scholar was 
heaped with official compliments, evidently in hope that he 
would keep silence. Such was not Dr. Winchell 's view. In a 
frank letter to the leading journal of the university town, he 
stated the whole matter. The intolerance-hating press of the 
country, religious and secular, did not hold its peace. In vain 
the authorities of the university waited for the storm to blow 
over. It was evident, at last, that a defense must be made, and a 
local organ of the sect, which, under the editorship of a fellow- 
professor, had always treated Dr. Winchell 's views with the 
luminous inaccuracy which usually characterizes a professor's 
ideas of a rival's teachings, assumed the task. In the articles 
which followed, the usual scientific hypotheses as to the creation 
were declared to be "absurd," "vague and unintelligible," 
"preposterous and gratuitous." ' While in Nashville Prof. 
Winchell constructed some pieces of microscopic apparatus and 
a small working steam-engine of one-fifth horse-power, and com- 
pleted a survey of the sanitary geology of that city. 

"In June, 1879, Prof. Winchell was unanimously recalled by 
the Board of Regents of the University of Michigan— a body 
that was by no means united on most questions — to the profes- 



EIGHTH GENERATION 369 

sorship of Geology and Paleontology in that institution. He 
went back under much more favorable conditions for scientific 
advancement than had existed when he left the institution seven 
years before. 'His duties at that time were spread over the 
whole held of geology, zoology, botany, museum and microscop- 
ical work. When he returned, the faculty embraced a Professor 
of Geology and Paleontology; a Professor of Mineralogy and 
Economic Geology ; a Professor of Zoology ; an Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Botany ; an Instructor in the Microscopical Laboratory ; 
and a Curator of the Museum — all of whose duties devolved 
upon one man in 1872. ' He began on his return to the univer- 
sity the preparation of an extended syllabus of a course of in- 
struction in general geology, accompanied by copious references 
to sources of information. He presided over the Section of 
Anthropology at the Montreal meeting of the American Asso- 
ciation. He spent the summer of 1886 in connection with the 
Geological Survey of Minnesota in field work in the extreme 
northern part of the State, north of Lake Superior. His work 
extended into twenty-four townships, where he noted and 
studied the outcrops at eight hundred and ninety localities, and 
he spent much time in the succeeding winter in the study for 
his first Minnesota report of the Archaean problems thus devel- 
oped. The observations made in this survey were important, and 
were found to throw much light on some of the problems of 
Archaean geology. The plan of the next year's survey extended 
over the original Huronian area, and also over the iron regions 
of Michigan and Wisconsin and into the area of the Animikie 
in northern Minnesota. He entered into the study and discus- 
sion of practical questions touching the stratigraphic relations 
of the older terranes and accumulated a large mass of data, the 
discussion of which he was never able to complete. He planned 
for a thorough discussion and examination of the data of the 
Archaean rocks, including their field relations and petrographic 
characters, and for the sake of it declined all but the most 
important invitations to lecture. In pursuance of this work he 
communicated to the eighteenth report of the Minnesota Survey 
(1889) a review of American opinion on the Presilurian rocks, 
and presented further results of his work in northern Minne- 
sota at the Toronto meeting of the American Association. His 
last year (1890) was one of his busiest, and was occupied with 
lectures, attendance on scientific meetings, geological excursions, 



370 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

and the preparation of plans for enlarging the laboratory of the 
university. Prof. Winchell was a leading spirit in the forma- 
tion of the Geological Society of America and in the establish- 
ment of the American Geologist. 

"His biographer in the American Geologist believes that Dr. 
Winchell was perhaps the very first man of science in America 
'who descended before popular audiences from that high-caste 
and stately but dry and unpopular style in which the older 
scientists had thought it fit to cloak the dignity of science. . . . 
Agassiz simplified zoological themes rather than popularized 
them, and lifted up his voice only . . . where the select appre- 
ciators of science were numerous enough to constitute an audi- 
ence.' Societies for scientific culture, summer institutes, and 
similar organizations formed a large part of the audiences. 

"Prof. \Vinchell was a voluminous writer. The list of his 
books and papers in the American Geologist includes two hun- 
dred and fifty-five titles. A predominant idea running through 
his Christian Theology Illustrated from Nature was that of the 
harmony between the indications and doctrines of science and 
the central doctrines of the Christian religion. A similar 
thought ran through several other of his works. His Geology of 
the Stars and his World Life were attempts to extend the his- 
tory of the earth as recorded in the geological strata so as to 
include the whole lifetime of a world, or to present, as he said 
in the preface, 'a thoughtful review of the processes of world 
formation, world growth, and world decadence.' Many of the 
thoughts in these works were so novel that he was not able to get 
an expression of opinion upon them from his fellow-students. 
A large proportion of his books are scientific treatises for popu- 
lar reading — vivacious, suggestive, embodying the accurate re- 
sults of scientific investigation, sparkling with original thoughts, 
and well adapted to their purpose. 

"The burden of his educational labor, according to his biog- 
rapher, lay in the direction of widening the avenues of natural 
science and of its introduction into secondary schools. 'He in- 
sisted that the young student is more observing than reflective or 
analytic, that the education of the mind should be by an appeal 
to its most accessible and most powerful impulses, and that the 
influence of science on the human mind, especially in its forma- 
tive stage, is more healthful to a normal growth, more conducive 
to moral rectitude, and more stimulating toward a right ambi- 



EIGHTH GENERATION 371 

tion, than any other field of knowledge. . . . He believed that 
there is as much mental and ethical culture to be derived from 
the study of natural science, when pursued with equal thorough- 
ness and exactness, as from the study of Greek or Latin litera- 
ture or of mathematics.' "

dren. 

An earnest, blameless valuable life, ended in the morning 
of its usefulness and success. 2376 Martin E., even while acquir- 
ing a primary education in his native town, taught a district 
school in North East, in 1847 ; at Ore Hill, Salisbury, Ct., in 
1848, and another in Stanford, N. Y., in 1849. He pursued more 
advanced studies at Amenia Seminary, preparatory to entering 
upon a course of professional study. He remained in the Semi- 
nary and read medicine with 1631 Dr. L. W. Stanton, until Jan- 
uary, 1850. He passed examinations for entrance at Union 
College, Jan. 23, 1850, but decided, probably from pecuniary 
considerations, not to prosecute his collegiate course. He accord- 
ingly went to Durham, Ct., and conducted the Academy there 
during 1851 and 1852, at the same time continuing his medical 
studies under Dr. Fowler, of that place. In 1852 he went to 
Pottstown, Penn., as "representative principal" of a school for 
boys. He attended lectures in the Medical Department of Yale 
College, and graduated 7 Jan., 1853. He spent about a year 
as Assistant Physician to King's County Hospital for the Insane, 
at Flat bush, L. I. Here he suffered a very severe attack of fever. 
In 1854 he received the appointment of Assistant Physician in 
the New Jersey State Lunatic Asylum at Trenton, where he 
remained two years. In the summer of 1856, he made a tour 
through the West, with a view of locating in general practice; 
but finally concluded to settle in New York City; choosing to 



372 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

grapple with the formidable difficulties of establishing a reputa- 
tion in the metropolis, and eventually reaping the fruits of a 
successful metropolitan practice, rather than seek the limited 
rewards of a country practice more easily secured. In Septem- 
ber, 1856, he opened an office at 339, Fourth Avenue, New York, 
removing, Dec, 1861, to 337, 4th Ave. With nothing but his 
own merits to commend him, he rapidly made friends ; and in the 
course of seven years of patient and resolute working and wait- 
ing, he built up a remunerative business. While in practice 
there, he was connected with the North-western and Demilt Dis- 
pensaries. In Jan., 1864, won by the tempting but illusory and 
treacherous scheme of cotton raising put forth by government 
authority, he engaged, with others, in cotton planting in Tensas 
Parish, La. Though encouraged by the fairest pledges of mili- 
tary protection, the place was sacked by guerrillas on the morn- 
ing of May 1st, 1864, when he fell a victim to their barbarity. 
His remains were conveyed to New York, and interred in Green- 
wood Cemetery. 

The New York Academy of Medicine adopted expressive reso- 
lutions of respect to his memory ; and the medical journals com- 
memorated the event by appropriate notices. 

Dr. M. E. Winchell was an industrious student of medicine 
and collateral sciences. The subject of insanity engrossed a 
large share of his attention, and he was predisposed to make its 
treatment a specialty. Though reserved in the communication of 
the results of his labors to the public, the columns of The True 
American, of Trenton, N. J., contain his reports of complete 
meteorological observations taken while connected with the State 
Asylum; and other papers have published occasional contribu- 
tions on other subjects. The New York Journal of Medicine 
contains an article of his on the ' ' Relations of the Medical Pro- 
fession to the Insane ' ' ; a report of i * Two cases of Trephining, ' ' 
and a paper on ''Delphinium and Vomiting in Pregnancy." 
Two extremely well-considered articles of his on the "Breadth 
of the Teacher's Vocation," were published in the Michigan 
Journal of Education in 1859. He possessed a large share of 
poetical genius and published a number of occasional pieces of 
great sweetness of rhythm and sentiment. 

He was a Fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine, 
and a member of the New York County Medical Society. His 
diploma of the latter is dated 7 Dec, 1863.

He was a member and regular attendant of Trinity Meth- 
odist Episcopal Church; and deeply interested himself in its 
religious and benevolent enterprises. He was connected with 
one of the Mission Sunday Schools of that society at the time of 
his death. He was made a life member of the Youth's Mis- 
sionary Society of Trinity M. E. Church, 27 Nov., 1859. 

He was a man of strong constitution and vigorous mind. His 
plans were well considered but prosecuted with inflexible pur- 
pose and unfailing patience. He was eminently conscientious, 
and always reliable. "His love for justice and truth was un- 
paralleled. • ' Too reserved to win a hasty and sensational popu- 
larity, he made fast friends of those who discovered his merits. 
Always courteous and gentle in his deportment he manifested 
exemplary forbearance under provocations. In all things he 
remembered his religious duties. In the language of one of his 
published biographies "he has left a name beloved by all who 
knew him, and unsullied by a single blemish." * * *

Antrim, and 3d, Dolan, and d. in Chicago, May 10, 1909, at 

the age of 51 years, where she was buried in Forest Home 
Cemetery.

2378 Newton Horace taught the public school on Winchell 
Mountain the winter in which he became 16 years old (1855-56). 
The following summer he taught the school at Lakeville, Ct., and 
the winter 1856-57 he taught the public school at Millerton, N. 
Y. In the spring of 1857 he went to Ann Arbor, Mich., at the 
invitation of his brother Alexander. This was the commence- 
ment of a period of study and teaching which continued to 1866, 
when he completed the course of undergraduate study at Ann 
Arbor and received his degree. During this period he was much 
at the home of his brother, and received from him the best of 
fraternal advice and aid. At the outbreak of the Civil War he 
enlisted, was elected Lieutenant of his company, and directed the 
drilling and other training in the camp at Ann Arbor; a pro- 
longed attack of typhoid fever prevented his going to the front. 
Prior to graduation he had married, had served on the Michigan 
Geological Survey, and was superintendent of city schools at St. 
Clair, Mich. In 1866 he was principal of a seminary at Colon 
and superintendent of schools at Port Huron, Mich. From 
1867 to 1870 he was superintendent of schools at Adrian, Mich., 
which office he resigned to accept a position under his brother 
Alexander on the revived Geological Survey of Michigan, which 
had been suspended on account of the Civil War. The follow- 
ing year he was appointed an assistant on the Ohio Geological 
Survey under Dr. J. S. Newberry, whence he was called, in 1872, 
to become state geologist of Minnesota, and professor in the state 
university. Here his work was multifarious and unremitted. 
With a corp of assistant geologists he prosecuted the geological 
survey of that state till 1900, a period of 28 years, during which 
he had surveyed, mapped and reported on every county of the 
state. This work was described in a series of twenty-four annual 
reports, and was concluded by a series of six quarto volumes, 
which were illustrated by many maps and suitable diagrams and 







ffs 



EIGHTH GENERATION 375 

figures. Some special topics were reported in "bulletins" of 
which he published ten. With the progress of the survey the 
museum of the University was built up by him. 

In 1874 he was geologist of an expedition authorized by the 
Federal Government, under Gen. G. A. Custer, to explore the 
Black Hills of Dakota, and he made and published in his report 
of this trip the first geological map of the interior of the Black 
Hills. 

In 1888, with the cooperation of five other geologists, in- 
cluding his brother Alexander, he established the American 
Geologist, which he edited and published during eighteen years, 
issuing thirty- six volumes, when the magazine was combined 
with another, enlarged and continued under the name Economic 
Geology. In this form it is still published (1916). 

In 1905 he became archeologist of the Minnesota Historical 
Society, and as a result of his work in that capacity he issued in 
1909, through the Society, a large quarto volume entitled The 
Aborigines of Minnesota, with chapters on their predecessors in 
America and on their migrations, and in 1913 a treatise on the 
Paleoliths of Kansas, showing that man existed in America prior 
to the ice age. 

In 1909, in collaboration with his son, Alexander N., he 
published, through the Van Nostrand Company, of New York, 
a university textbook on the Elements of Optical Mineralogy. 

His chief scientific work was the geological survey of Minne- 
sota, but because of it, and along with it, he encountered numer- 
ous questions, both of administration an(t of geological research. 
These he discussed in his reports and in the scientific journals, 
particularly in the American Geologist. The list of his pub- 
lished papers, including those which are archeological, numbers 
more than 300. He found himself sometimes at variance with 
the conclusions of the geologists of the United States Geological 
Survey respecting the geological structure of the region of Lake 
Superior, and respecting the origin of the iron ores of that 
region. By the latest researches, however, his views in both 
respects have been confirmed in large measure. The points at 
issue are important scientifically and economically, but this is 
not the place to review them. 

He had the satisfaction of seeing his sons, Horace V. and 
Alexander N., as well as his son-in-law, U. S. Grant, become 
geologists of prominence in the United States. 



376 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

His work, in comparison with that of his brother Alexander, 
was confined more closely to original research, and less to the 
dissemination of science. He found the exactions of careful 
field-work and of accurate discussion and publication of his 
results so imperative that he was not able to give time to lectur- 
ing or to the popularization of scientific themes. 

He was a member of many scientific societies both in America 
and Europe. He was one of the founders of the Minnesota 
Academy of Science in 1873 and served three terms as its presi- 
dent. The first movements for the organization of the Geo- 
logical Society of America were instigated by him at the Cin- 
cinnati meeting (1881) of the American Association for the 
Advancement of Science. In 1884 he was vice-president of the 
American Association, and in 1902 he was elected president of 
the Geological Society. He was elected an honorary member of 
the Lake Superior Mining Institute. He was for many years a 
member of the Executive Council of the Minnesota Historical 
Society. 

He also held membership in the following organizations: 
American Anthropological Society, Geological Society of Lon- 
don, Mississippi Valley Historical Association, National Geo- 
graphic Society, International Geological Congress, Societe 
Francaise de Mineralogie, Societe Geologique de Belgique. 

He was a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, 
being a lineal descendant from two of the officers in the war of 
the Revolution. 

Although an ardent Republican he was appointed by Pres. 
Cleveland (Democrat) a member of the Federal Assay Com- 
mission, for 1886, and inspected and reported upon the U. S. 
Mint at Philadelphia, receiving a bronze medal from the Presi- 
dent in token of his service. 

At the Cotton Centennial Exposition at New Orleans in 1884 
he had charge of and installed the mineral exhibit of the State 
of Minnesota. 

At the St. Louis Exposition in 1904 he was awarded a gold 
medal in recognition of his work on the Geological and Natural 
History Survey of Minnesota. 

Soon after the death of his brother Alexander in 1891 he 
began to plan for the revision of the Winchell Genealogy, which 
labor of love he actually began in 1897 and continued with untir- 
ing persistence until suddenly called away by death, although 



EIGHTH GENERATION 377 

pressure of other duties and serious illness in 1904 interrupted 
the work, which was not resumed again until 1910, when it was 
again entered upon zealously, and thereafter for four years 
every spare moment was devoted to hastening its completion. 
Often when reminded of his weariness and need of rest at the 
close of a full day spent at his office, he would reply: "I must 
work to get the genealogy done." 

In his will dated 15 June, 1912 (not probated because at- 
tested by only one witness) the following paragraph is included : 
"My work on the Genealogy of the Winchell Family, if not fin- 
ished at the time of my death, I bequeath to my sons Horace and 
Alexander, with the hope that they will complete it. This work 
has been in progress for many years, and I shall deeply regret 
the leaving of it unfinished." 

His wife has been active and prominent in educational and 
philanthropic work. Her first public work was to organize 
1 ' Soldiers ' Aid ' ' societies during the Civil War. She served as a 
member and secretary of the St. Anthony school board in 1886- 
1888 and until St. Anthony was united with Minneapolis, and 
her historical sketch of the St. Anthony schools was incorporated 
in the annual report of the state superintendent of schools. For 
15 years she was an active worker in the Woman's Christian 
Temperance Union, serving it as state superintendent of scientific 
temperance instruction in the schools, and securing the law for 
such instruction in the schools of the state ; in 1895 she was dele- 
gate to the World's W. C. T. U. Convention at London. In 1883 
she aided in organizing the Minneapolis Branch of the Woman's 
Foreign Missionary Society of the M. E. Church, and has been 
identified with it, in all its work, since that date, serving as 
Conference Secretary, and Corresponding Secretary of the 
Minneapolis Branch for 12 years, and as editor and publisher of 
the Branch periodicals.

ford, Conn., where she still remains (1915). 

2379 Antoinette C. was a teacher from fifteen years of age, 
first in Marian Holden's private school at Lakeville, Ct., and 
then in succession to her brother Newton in the public school 
on Winchell Mountain. She was (later) educated at Amenia 
Seminary, N. Y., and after her marriage went to Pittsburg, Pa., 
where she and her husband were employed as teachers in the 
Pittsburg Female College. In 1864 she devoted much time to 
oil painting and at Stanstead, Quebec, was a teacher of paint- 
ing and music. Settling in Lynn, Mass., in 1868, Prof. Johnson 
founded a classical school which he conducted for many years 
with great success, and until his health failed. He conducted a 
book store in Lynn for some years. He was a graduate of Wes- 
leyan University (1856) with Phi Beta Kappa honors and be- 
came a most popular teacher at Amenia, at Pittsburg, at Auburn- 
dale, Mass., and at Stanstead (Quebec), as well as at Lynn. He 
died at Lynn, Mass., Feb. 24, 1894. She was a member of Lynn 
School Board for seven years. She lived at Hartford, Conn., 
with her daughter Mabel, 1916. 

After her husband's death Antoinette served for several 
years as matron in the Hotchkiss school at Lakeville, Ct.

1869-73; of the Milwaukee (Wis.) High School, 1873-1875; edi- 
tor and publisher of the Educational Weekly in Chicago, 
1876-1880; manager of the New England Department of D. 
Appleton & Co., 1881-1886; manager of the Interstate Publish-

of Illinois, 1889-91. Proprietor of the Winchell Teachers' 
Agency and Lecture Bureau, 1892-1912. Principal of the 
Winchell Academy, Evanston, 111., 1894-97. Editor of Teacher 
and Student, a literary and educational magazine, 1894-98, 
Winchell 9 s Quarterly and The Rostrum, 1898-1903. 

Samuel Robertson was eminently successful as a teacher, but 
was lured into business by better pecuniary rewards, and to con- 
serve his health, which was always delicate. While acting as 
teacher and editor he compiled and wrote several volumes of a 
practical kind, the chief of which were: Latin Prose Composi- 
tion, 1875 ; Elementary Lessons in Greek Syntax, 1887 ; Orthog- 
raphy, Etymology and Punctuation, 1901; Chicago, Past, Pres- 
ent, and Future, 1905; The Artists 9 Blue Book of Chicago, 1906; 
A Civic Manual of Chicago, Cook County and Illinois, 1910. 

As a publisher he was the pioneer in furnishing "supple- 
mentary reading" for the public schools, having edited and pub- 
lished nearly five hundred volumes and pamphlets of an educa- 
tional character. 

In private life he has always been respected as a man whose 
word was as good as his bond, ever ready to lend a helping hand 
to those in need, and faithful in his devotion to Church and 
Sunday School. He resided in Minneapolis, Minn., in 1916. 

His wife, Calphurnia E. Corson, besides devoting herself to 
the promotion of his literary and educational enterprises, has 
written a number of very sweet little poems, many of which 
have appeared in print. From these the following is selected : 

A SUMMER EVENING. 

The sun has shone all day with fiery heat; 
Slowly, at last, it sinks beneath the waves, 
Tinting the clouds with roseate hue; it bathes 
The lake in splendor, in its slow retreat. 
The waves lap softly on the sandy shore; 
Forgotten now are noonday ills. A bird, 
Twittering good night to nesting mate, is heard; 
A robin sings its love song o'er and o'er. 



380 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

Silent, o'er lake and forest, hill and stream, 
. The quiet shadows of the summer night 
Have gathered. From the town there shines a light 
In happy homes, where sleeping children dream. 
The day is done, and, like a soft-toned prayer, 
The faint perfume of flowers pervades the air.

ON WINCHELL MOUNTAIN. 
By William Edward Penney. 

When the mist hangs in the valley 

Like a great white motionless sea, 
The sunlight crowns the mountain top, 
And the breeze blows strong and free 



382 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

From the Catskills crest 

In the distant west, 
And it tosses and sways in boisterous glee 
The mighty arms of each grand old tree 

On the top of Winchell Mountain. 

At last the mists in the valley feel 

A touch of the breeze and slowly reel 
In forms fantastic, and then they rise 
To melt away in the morning skies, 

And a picture rare, 

Through the misty air 
As it slowly rises there stands revealed 
Stretches of woodland, of meadow field, 

Seen from lofty Winchell Mountain. 

And all through the sultry summer day 

The breeze keeps rocking the maples there. 
As 'neath their shadow you sit and gaze 
At a painting vast, through the summer haze, 

Of valleys wide 

On either side, 
And the distant mountains that silently stand 
Like sentinels guarding a fairy land 

At the foot of Winchell Mountain. 

And the clouds slow sailing overhead 

Cast grotesque shadows o'er the scene, 
As sun and shade alternate fall 
On farmhouse white and fields of green, 

While here and there, 

On the soft air, 
Comes tinkling of bells, and the wild birds' song 
Borne on the summer breeze along 

To the top of Winchell Mountain.

4420 Lilbourne Ely, b. Fresno, Cal., 10 May, 1890. In June, 1907, he en- 

listed as apprentice seaman, at the U. S. training school at Yerba 
Buena Island in the harbor of San Francisco. Within a year he 
was transferred to the battle-ship Nebraska, and joined the .memor- 
able procession of the "Atlantic Fleet" as it entered the harbor 
of San Francisco, May 6th, 1908. On the 7th of July, this 
imposing Armada sailed to encircle the globe. Visiting ancient 
seaports, skirting tropical shores, the fleet reentered New York 
harbor a year later. 

During two years of maneuvers on the Atlantic shores which 
followed, he gave himself to the study of steam and electric ma- 
chinery, and, in 1910, sailed with the fleet to visit cities of the 
European coasts, finishing with London, — thence returning to New 
York, to recount, with enthusiasm, the hospitality of the English 
people towards the officers and men of the American fleet. 

He re-enlisted in 1911 and was soon promoted to the Flag- 
ship Wyoming. Leaving the service with high credits, 1 June, 1915, 
he entered practice as a mechanical engineer. 

3669 Lilbourne Alsip, after graduating from the San Fran- 
cisco grammar schools, and from Heald's Business College in 
that city in 1876, returned to Fresno where he held the posi- 
tion of chief deputy in the county assessor's office for fourteen 
years. An enthusiastic lover of the mountains, his summer 



NINTH GENERATION 425 

vacations were often spent in the untrodden, high Sierras with 
rifle, camera, compass and note-book. In 1879, he explored the 
almost unknown gorges of Kings' River, with a comrade, forc- 
ing his difficult way through pathless, tangled jungles of chap- 
arral, down the precipitous wall of a profound abyss, — the ■ ' Te- 
hipite Canon" of Kings' River — lying 4,000 feet above the sea, 
and whose bordering, stupendous cliffs rise a mile higher. They 
were the first to photograph those majestic heights and gloomy 
depths, and to make their matchless grandeur known to the 
world. For four days they were here imprisoned, leagues from 
the haunts of civilized man, seeking a practicable route of 
egress from the canon ; and it was only after ten hours of in- 
cessant climbing, and exhausting toil, that they escaped from 
this granite bastile of the Sierras. 

In 1879 (Sept. 23) he scaled the summit of Mount Goddard, 
an isolated peak at the head of the south fork of the San Joaquin 
River, 14,600 feet above the sea, — the first white man to accom- 
plish this feat ; taking photographs of the tremendous panorama 
which encircles it. On the snowy top he erected a stone monu- 
ment within which he placed a record of the event. 

Further explorations of the high, alpine region of the Sierra 
Nevada, embracing the serrated summit known as the Palisades, 
and the circumjacent territory which contributes to the sources 
of the San Joaquin and Kings' Rivers, were made during this 
summer of 1879 and many succeeding years. * 

He furnished to the public the first map of this terra incog- 
nita with notes, sketches and the names bestowed by himself 
upon prominent features of this wonderland; including a de- 
scription of the great residual glacier which lies in the deep 
gorge at the foot of the "Mother Palisade," and whose existence 
was hitherto unknown to the world. 

To the three highest of these Palisade spires were given the 
names of "Winchell's Peak," in honor of Alexander Winchell, 
the eminent American geologist and author ; ' ' Agassiz ' Needle, ' ' 
and the "Mother Palisade "—all rising about 14,000 feet. 

In 1894, following a political revolution, and financial dis- 
aster from the national panic, he removed his family from 
Fresno to make a new home in the Sierras, 4,000 feet above the 
sea, where he built an attractive cottage by a perpetual spring 
in the edge of a forest. Here he devoted himself to horticulture, 
plant-improvement, intensive farming and stock-raising. 



426 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

His familiarity with the forests and mountains led the U. S. 
Government to appoint him to a position in the Forest Reserve 
service which he held for five years, resigning to devote himself 
exclusively to his farming and fruit-raising interests. 

In the fall of 1910, he prepared a new home for his family 
in the city of Fresno, where, after an absence of fifteen years 
of memorable mountain life, they now reside. 

Ernestine Miller, wife of 3669 Lilbourne Alsip, was born 
in Niagara County, New York, June 1, 1865. Moved to Fresno, 
Calif., in 1822. In late years she has contributed, with marked 
success, to various magazines, many short stories of the rnoun* 
tains, presenting striking portraitures of aboriginal character, 
and sketches of life among the Indians of California. For a 
long period she wrote articles devoted to a study of child life 
for the Mothers' Magazine.

which he continued for two years. During the earthquake com- 
motions of April, 1906, he was detailed with other cadets, under 
Federal orders, at Fort Mason, in the presidio, and with other 
contingents, for the protection and assistance of the hosts of 
refugees thronging the streets and fleeing for shelter to the parks, 
cemeteries, beaches and sand-hills. They assisted also in the dis- 
tribution of food; and on one occasion, from their post near the 
"Scott Key Monument," they dealt out — among other supplies — 
tons of corned beef to the hungry people in the "Bread Lines." 
In May, 1906, he enlisted in Co. H, Fifth Inft., of the "Nat'l. 
Guard of California," known as "The Nationals," organized in 
1855, the oldest military organization in the state. In 1909 he 
became Color Sergeant, and in 1915 was elected 2d Lieutenant.

ladder company of Fresno whose equipment was burned in 
July, 1882. This was replaced by a hand-engine and hose-cart, 
venerable relics of 1850, which, as first assistant foreman, he 
operated with his company until 1885, when he became first 
assistant chief, and the first steam fire-engine in Fresno was 
brought into use. In recognition of his conspicuous services, 
he was, in 1889, elected in San Francisco, " honorary member' ' 
of "The Veteran Volunteer Fireman's Association" of Cali- 
fornia. 

After a second term in the collector's and recorder's office 
in Fresno, he was, in 1884, elected constable of third township, 
and also served as deputy sheriff during 1886-87 and 1892-93. 

In June, 1885, he aided the organization of, and enlisted as 
private in, Company "C" of Sixth Inft., National Guard of 
California. Corporal in 1887 and 2d Lieut, in 1889, he was 
elected Captain, 16 December, 1891. In December, 1893, he 
was, by Governor Markham, appointed brigade inspector, with 
rank of major, on the staff of Brigadier-General M. W. Muller. 

During the widespread strike of railroad employees of 1894, 
he was detailed commissary and quartermaster of the military 
camp at Bakersfield in Kern County, Cal., whence the first strike- 
bound trains in the state were moved, opening the Southern 
Pacific R. R. to traffic from San Francisco to Los Angeles. His 
services at this juncture were commended in the military 
reports. 

May 21, 1895, he retired as brigade inspector ; but when the 
U. S. battleship Maine was blown up in Havana Harbor, he 
tendered his services to the government for the war with Spain. 

After his marriage, he had given up the civil positions that 
he had held, to engage, in 1888, in mercantile lines. But again, 
in 1892, as deputy sheriff, he took active part in the pursuit of 
a band of train robbers, the boldness of whose deeds in every 
state, from Illinois to California, aroused the entire state, result- 
ing in their capture and imprisonment for long terms. 

In 1889, he, with others, located extensive oil lands in 
Fresno County; and in 1900, having enlisted San Francisco 
capital in these enterprises, he moved with his family to that 
city to supervise their development. Dividends being delayed,

however, many of his associates lost heart and the property 
lapsed. 

The real estate business, which he entered without delay, 
prospered until the 18th of April, 1906, when it was abruptly 
terminated by the earthquake and fire. Since then he has been 
engaged in a manufacturing corporation under encouraging 
auspices.

round the world in 1894-1896, with the world's Commission of 
the Field Columbian Museum; and is at present (1900) of the 
Cushman-Winchell Press, New York and Pittsburg, and was 
formerly proprietor of the Winchell Printing Company, New 
York. The strong credentials of the U. S. Government caused 
the Commission's favorable reception and royal attention by 
eastern nations. .He improved the opportunity to glean infor- 
mation and ideas on engraving, printing and designing, and 
greatly increased his experience and knowledge in his favorite 
profession. In the Inland Printer (Chicago and New York), 
February, 1900, is a sketch of him, with a portrait, from which 
the following is extracted : 

"Winchell is nothing if he is not Winchellesque. He sud- 
denly closed out his business in the Winchell Printing Com- 
pany, right in the zenith of his brilliant success, and put off as 
a member of the World's Commission, already mentioned. It 
was then that he established the Cushman-Winchell Company. 
He excels as a designer and draughtsman, rendering with equal 
fidelity figures, animals, landscapes, machinery and architecture. 
He is at once painter, sculptor, architect and mechanical 
draughtsman. He is inclined to the humorous in social mo- 
ments, thoughtful and serious when discussing business ; dreamy 
in repose, indicating the rare combination of business ability 
and artistic temperament. He is a clever talker, enjoys and 
can tell a good story, and has a wide circle of personal friends, 
attracted to him by his personal magnetism."

II. COLUMBIA BRANCH. 



FIRST GENERATION. 

5001 SAMUEL WINCHELL. Said to have been born in 
Scotland; m., as 2d husband, Susannah Hart (who m. 1st, Robert 
Graham) in Cayuga Co., N. Y. ; removed to Columbia, Fayette 
Co., Ind. 

5002 Louisa.

According to information received from 5014 Edward of 
this branch, 5001 Samuel was born in Scotland, but this report 
may be only a survival of the tradition in the family of a Scotch 
or English ancestry. It seems probable that full information 
would show that all members of this branch are descended 
from Robert of the Windsor Branch.

III. GOSHEN BRANCH. 



FIRST GENERATION. 

5101 MUNSON WINCHELL. Born as early as 1740 ; m. Sarah 
Beach, Great Barrington, Mass. ; d. Goshen, Ct., 1783. 

5102 William Flavel, b. Goshen, Ct., 29 Aug., 1772. 

5103 Leverett, b. Goshen, Ct., 25 Nov., 1777. 

5104 Adino, b. Goshen, Ct., about 1778. 

5105 Sally, b. Goshen, Ct., about 1779. 

5106 Munson, b. Goshen, Ct., 1780. 

5107 Anna, b. Goshen, Ct. 

5101 Munson, according to information from 5109 John 
Winchell, "was one of seven brothers who served in the British 
army, in the war before the revolution." He says, "I never 
knew the names of any of his brothers. If rightly informed, 
they each had the British crown, with the lion and unicorn, 
wrought in needle-work, on the frontispiece of their caps. My 
grandfather was at Detroit, Mich., while in the service. He 
knew nothing of his brothers after the close of the war." 

According to 5114 Munson Winchell, 5101 Munson came 
from England with two brothers and joined the revolutionary 
army ; and in the first battle in which they were engaged, they 
became separated, and he never heard of either of them there- 
after. 

Some details of 5101 Munson 's family have also been re- 
ceived from 5119 William Austin Winchell, who states that he 
"came from a distance" to Goshen, Ct. 

According to Colonial records of Connecticut, Munson served 
in the French and Indian War in 1758 ; was a corporal in 1759 
and a sergeant in 1760. 

One informant states that he married "after the Revolu- 
tion ' ' ; but it was probably after the ' ' French and Indian War, ' ' 
in which he had served as a soldier. His wife, Sarah Beach, is 
said to have been "a beautiful and accomplished lady." 

It would not be a matter of surprise if it should yet be dis- 

460 



GOSHEN BRANCH — SECOND GENERATION 461 

covered that 5101 Munson and his brothers were descended 
from Robert of the Windsor Branch. 

Evidence is still lacking to prove that Munson was descended 
from Robert, but two facts are now known which suggest such 
an ancestry. In the History of Goshen (by A. G. Hibbard) it 
is related that Munson was on a scouting expedition from 
Goshen during the French and Indian War, when he was sur- 
prised by an Indian, who shot at him, the ball passing between 
his body and his arm. He promptly shot the Indian dead, took 
his knife, and scalped him. The knife had twenty-four notches 
on the back, which were supposed to represent the number of 
men scalped by the Indian. 

This adventure might well have befallen a settler in the 
colonies who was used to the methods of Indian warfare, but it 
is not likely that a recent arrival from England would have 
scalped the Indian, even if he had been out on such a scouting 
trip. 

Munson was married at Great Barrington, Mass., and it is 
reasonable to think that he grew up there. David Winchell 
was one of the original proprietors of that place, about 1735. 
This can not be any David Winchell named in the preceding 
pages. In February, 1744, Samuel Winchell, Jr., was recorded 
as a member of the church at Great Barrington. If the father 
of this Samuel, Jr., is included in the preceding pages, he was 
probably 34 Samuel. It is probable that David and Samuel, 
Jr., were brothers, and David may reasonably be regarded as the 
father of Munson.

5301 Justus, the founder of this sub-branch, was the oldest 
son of Justus, a man of wealth, who, according to 5312 Samuel, 
lived in Hesse Cassel. Young Justus, when 18 years old, was 
some distance from home collecting money for his father, when 
a ' ' press gang ' ' forced him into service among the Hessian mer- 
cenaries, in the employ of the King of England, against the 
American colonies. He came over with Burgoyne's Army and 
served in it. At the close of the war he had the opportunity to 
return with the other Hessians, but preferred to settle in the 
country against which he had been compelled to fight. He 
married a Dutch woman in the Mohawk Valley, and settled at 
Hebron, Washington Co., N. Y.

V. JOCKGRIM BRANCH, 



FIRST GENERATION. 

5501 GEORG MICHAEL WINCHELL. Born Jockgrim, in 
the Palatinate (Rheinpfalz), Bavaria; m. Elizabeth Baur, Jock- 
grim, 1816 ; d, Jockgrim, 15 May, 1850. Wife d. 2 Mar., 1854. 

5502 Elizabeth, b. Jockgrim; m. Joseph Dionys Preis. Lived Richmond, 

O., 1868. 

5503 Franz Michael, b. Jockgrim. Lived in Germany, 1868. 

5504 Andreas, b. Jockgrim; d. with w. and ch. in New Orleans. 

5505 Salome, b. Jockgrim. Lived in Germany, 1868. 

5506 Anthon, b. Jockgrim, 8 Nov., 1828. 

5507 John Adam, b. Jockgrim. Farmer, Perry Co., Mo., 1868. 

5508 Franziska, b. Jockgrim; m. William Ohlmann. Lived at Cincinnati, 

O., 1868. 

The only information 1 obtained of this branch is from 
5506 Anthon, with whom correspondence has been conducted 
in the German language. 5501 Georg Michael, in his 20th year, 
became a soldier under Napoleon; was nine years in "the 
Guard"; 18 months a prisoner in Spain; returned in 1806; 
obtained his discharge in 1815. 

5506 Anthon writes further that he has never before found 
any one with exactly his own family name, though he has 
traveled a good deal in Germany and America. He has, how- 
ever, in Germany, known many in his native neighborhood by 
the name of Wunstel. He found the same name in Cincinnati, 
and supposed it was his own, until comparison was made. He 
has also met with some by the name of Wenzel. "We had also 
a cousin, at one time, in our neighborhood, who bore our name. 
When I was a schoolboy, our father used often jokingly to say 
to us children that he had a rich uncle, but we could never find 
out where he was. More frequently he spoke of Poland ; and he 
desired at one time to remove there, but the mother did not 
consent. ' ' 

1 See 5521-5527 for others probably related to this branch.

482 THE WINCHELL GENEALOGY 

As stated in the Introduction, it is probable that the members 
of this sub-branch, and all who in Germany give the English 
orthography or pronunciation to the name, are descendants from 
ancestors who lived in England; though such ancestors were 
themselves descended perhaps from an ancient Saxon family. 



SECOND GENERATION. 

5506 ANTHON WINCHELL (5501 Georg). Born Jockgrim, 
Bavaria. Turner, 2517 Broadway, St. Louis, Mo., 1868.

5510 . 

5511 . 



5506 Anthon served six years as soldier in the garrison of 
Augsburg. He came to America in 1856. 



The following families are probably related to the Jockgrim 
Branch through the daughter (5521) of a Winchell who lived 
in Bavaria. 

FIRST GENERATION. 

5521 WINCHELL. Born in Germany ; m. a man named 

Meyers. 

5522 James (Winchell), b. (in Bingburg?), 85 miles from Munich. He 
assumed the surname of his mother. She was probably related to 
the Jockgrim Branch. 



SECOND GENERATION. 

5522 JAMES WINCHELL (5521 ). Born in Germany; 

lived (in Bingburg?) 85 miles from Munich. He assumed the 
surname of his mother.

FOURTH GENERATION. 

5524 JAMES GEORGE WINCHELL (5523 James, 5522 James, 
5521 ) . Born Munich, Bavaria, 1819 ; m. Elizabeth Scran- 
ton, an English lady, Brussels, Belgium, who d. Chalons, France, 
1859. He d. Galveston, Texas, 10 Aug., 1853. 

5525 John Keys, b. Galveston, Tex., 15 Dec., 1841; m. Gertrude Elizabeth 

Heald, Chicago, 111., 27 Oct., 1867. Architect, Chicago, in good

5526 William Eeinhold, b. Galveston, Tex., 4 July, 1843. Lived at Lyons, 

France, a bookkeeper in a silk factory in 1868. 

5527 Elizabeth, b. Havana, Cuba, 17 Jan., 1845; d. Chalons, Prance, Oct., 

1861. 

5524 James George removed to Galveston, Texas (probably 
from The Hague) about 1839 and settled on a farm. After 4 
years he purchased a farm near Havana, Cuba. He lived alter- 
nately on these two farms till his death, when his family 
(excepting John K.) returned to Europe and settled at Chalons.
